CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Lawyers for Michael Brelo, the Cleveland police officer charged with manslaughter after a chase turned deadly, want a gag order on the Cuyahoga County prosecutor.

The lawyers filed a motion writing they are unhappy with the prosecutor discussing the case in public, and they disagree with his portrayal of the facts. They are concerned about a "fair trial."

Also, lawyers for two police supervisors charged with dereliction of duty have filed papers demanding jury trials and the evidence to be used in the case.

It all revolves around a long police chase in November 2012 that ended with 13 Cleveland police officers firing 137 shots and killing two suspects.
