LinkSt. CHARLES COUNTY • A St. Charles County judge held on Friday a pretrial conference in chambers in the Pam Hupp capital murder case, and declined to open the meeting.
The “conference” was billed in court records as an informal discussion of pretrial matters. St. Charles Circuit Judge Jon Cunningham declined, via a clerk, a request by the Post-Dispatch to move the hearing into open court. A deputy sheriff said the same to a Post-Dispatch reporter and journalists from Fox 2/KTVI who were waiting outside the courtroom.
