Toledo - The drama of a priest on trial for a nun's murder is spectacle enough, but it has a lot of help.

Local reporters say Toledo has seen nothing like it in 20 years, and they are talking about the media attention, not the anomaly of a priest on trial.

The Rev. Gerald Robinson's trial enters its second week of testimony Monday, and the tone inside the Lucas County courtroom is expected to be as restrained and dignified as it has been since jury selection began in mid-April.

Outside, though, the media presence is felt immediately.
