An El Paso County Sheriff's Deputy talks to Robert Lewis Dear during a court appearance on Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2015, in Colorado Springs, Colo. Dear, accused of killing three people and wounding nine others at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic on Nov. 27, was charged with first-degree murder.

Attorneys for a man who killed three people and injured nine more in a shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs are seeking to have their client barred from talking to the news media.

The Gazette reports Robert Lewis Dear Jr.'s lawyers filed a motion last week asking the court to require a mental health facility in Pueblo to prohibit reporters from interacting with their client. Dear is undergoing treatment there while the case against him is pending.
