Material from Hilton Case to be Released

Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis filed an order Friday that will allow some information to be released in the case of the State of Florida versus Gary Hilton.

Judge Lewis decided that a limited amount of information of case related material will be released to the public to insure a fair trial to both the state and the Defendant.

The released information will be filled into the Clerk of the Circuit Courts once the newly released information is provided to the courts for final approval and filing.

Both WCTV and the Tallahassee Democrat have asked for court documents to be open to public access.

Hilton is accused of murdering Crawfordville woman, Cheryl Dunlap... and faces the death penalty if convicted.

Dunlap's body was discovered in the Apalachicola National Forest over a year ago.
