For months, members of the media have been waiting in vain for murder suspect Shawna Forde to put in an appearance at Pima County Superior Court.
Forde, however, has been exercising her right to waive her presence in court, preferring to remain in her cell at the Pima County jail.
Now we know why.
According to court documents filed by defense attorney Jill Thorpe, Forde thinks showing up in court in an orange jumpsuit will "negatively influence her potential jury pool."
Since more important pretrial hearings are coming up, Forde would like to start coming to court though.
So, Thorpe will be asking Judge John Leonardo on Friday if Forde can start wearing street clothes to court.
If the judge isn't inclined to grant that motion, Thorpe said she hopes the judge will ban cameras from filming or shooting Forde.
If you'll recall, another female murder suspect, Pamela Phillips, asked for a similar ban earlier this week.
Forde is one of three people charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of 9-year-old Brisenia Flores and her father, Raul Flores Jr.
If she's convicted, she could get the death penalty.
