COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- The suspect in a high profile Collier County murder case will continue to wear his orange jumpsuit and shackles when making court appearances.

Today, a judge denied Christopher Serna's request to wear a suit during his pre-trial court appearances.

His attorney argued potential jurors are being influenced by media coverage of Serna in his orange jumpsuit and shackles.
