Judge: Teen’s court proceedings will be open

Staff reports

Tenth Judicial District Judge Albert Mitchell ruled Monday that court proceedings in the Tony Day murder case will be open to the public.

Day, 15, is accused of killing his adoptive mother, Sue Day, and his sister, Sherry Folts, in November 2012.

Prosecuting attorneys and the Quay County Sun opposed a request made by Day’s guardian, Kathleen Oakey, to keep court proceedings related to medical records private.

The judge ruled that any information and documents pertaining to mental health treatments and solutions for Day may continue to be sealed but anything entered into evidence in the case will be open to the public.
