CHARLESTON, W.Va (WDTV) - The VA serial killer Reta Mays is set for sentencing Tuesday after pleading guilty to the murder of seven veterans at the Clarksburg VA Medical Center. However, ahead of her hearing, her attorneys are attempting to block some evidence from publication.

In a motion Monday morning, Mays’ attorneys are attempting to block recorded testimony by a victims’ son. That testimony was recorded in September because of fears that the son would not survive to Tuesdays hearing due to poor health.

Mays’ defense says an expletive used by the son towards Mays could be used as a rallying cry against her. U.S. Attorneys contend it will not be used as a rallying cry and have moved for Judge Thomas Kleeh to dismiss the motion.
