Brown's lawyers wanted him to walk them through the crime scene so they could collect their own evidence. But in this order, the judge denies the request because there is no claim that Brown's rights are being unconstitutionally infringed upon.

It states quote, "The request to allow the defendant to observe the scene of his alleged crime with his attorneys, is denied, as no compelling reason has been asserted for such relief."

The judge did state he expects Brown's lawyers to conduct a thorough investigation even though the motions were denied.
Brown remains in the Madison County Jail without bond.
