Media challenges gag order in Tara Grindstead case

- Georgia's highest court heard arguments Tuesday about a gag order in the case of murdered teacher Tara Grinstead.

Several media outlets are challenging the order. The gag order prevents anyone associated with the case from speaking about it outside of the courtroom or in the official course of preparing for court.

Lawyers said it violates the media's First Amendment right to gather and report the news.

Grinstead disappeared from her home in Ocilla in 2005. Her body has not been found, but this past year two men were arrested in connection to her death.

Ryan Duke is charged with murder.

Bo Dukes is accused of helping conceal her body.
