WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (AP) -

A judge has scheduled a hearing in a lawsuit filed by the mother of 1 of 3 Cub Scouts killed in 1993 in West Memphis.

Pam Hicks filed the civil suit in hopes of viewing evidence in the slaying of her son, 8-year-old Stevie Branch, and his friends, Michael Moore and Christopher Byers.

Hicks argues that police and prosecutors are violating the state's Freedom of Information Act by not allowing her to examine items from the case, including her son's bicycle and clothing. The Jonesboro Sun reports that Circuit Court Judge Victor Hill will consider Hicks' request at 10 a.m. on Oct. 24.

Prosecutor Scott Ellington has said he's willing to let Hicks view the bicycle and clothing but that he won't release all investigative materials.
