Judge: JonBenet indictment should be public

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A secret indictment in the slaying of JonBenet Ramsey should be made public. That's the ruling Thursday in a challenge to the secrecy of a 1999 indictment that never resulted in a prosecution in the 6-year-old's death.

The ruling was in response to a lawsuit from a reporter from The Camera newspaper and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press (http://bit.ly/1as38a4).

A grand jury voted in 1999 to indict the slain girl's parents. However, the district attorney at the time refused to sign the document and prosecute the Ramseys.
