Cameras allowed in courtroom for Neosho church killer's guilty plea
Judge Tim Perigo ruled earlier this week that cameras will be permitted in the courtroom Friday when Eiken Elam Saimon, 55, Neosho, is expected to plead guilty.
Saimon is charged with three counts of first degree murder, four counts of assault, and single counts of felonious restraint and armed criminal action in connection with the Aug. 12, 2007, shootings during a Micronesian congregation's services at the First Congregational Church of Neosho.
The murder victims were three church leaders, including pastor Kernal Rehobson.
