Media file motion to unseal BTK records

Six media organizations, including The Associated Press, filed court papers Wednesday to intervene in the BTK serial killings case, seeking the release of sealed documents.

The motion to intervene seeks to vacate seven previously filed orders by District Judge Gregory Waller sealing various documents related to the state's case against Dennis Rader. It also asks that any further requests to seal documents be heard in open court.

In addition to AP, others joining in the action were the Wichita Eagle; Media General Operations Inc., which operates KWCH-TV; Gray Television Group Inc., which operates KAKE-TV; KSNW-TV, a property of Emmis Communications; and Kansas Press Assn.
