TAMPA, Fla. – Defense lawyers for accused Seminole Heights serial killer Howell Donaldson III are asking a judge to restrict information in certain court records related to the case.

The public defender’s office filed a motion in February and will appear before a judge in the 13th Judicial Circuit Court around 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

In the motion, the defense cites the right for the defendant to have a fair trial as a reason for redacting certain details in court records.

Donaldson III will not appear in court; his lawyers waived his right to appear. His next scheduled hearing is in June.
