The Virginia Court of Appeals says closing a competency hearing in a Roanoke County murder case violated the first amendment.

In May, Judge Roy Willet closed the competency hearing for Earl Bramblett.
Bramblett is charged with killing four members of a Vinton family.
During the hearing, three psychologists testified about the defendant.
Judge Willet sealed the testimony, saying it was necessary to protect Bramblett's right to a fair trial.
The Appeals Court disagreed, saying the public had a right to be there, because competency hearings can sometimes delay a trial indefinitely.
The court documents will remain sealed until Judge Willet orders them opened.
