Teen Accused of Murdering Jessica Ridgeway Due in Court
GOLDEN, Colo. - The Westminster teen accused of the murder and abduction of 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway will be back in court Friday. Sigg is accused of killing Jessica last year and also attacking a jogger before that. Siggs' lawyers say that massive news coverage of the case has jeopardized his right to a fair trial. They are seeking separate trials for Jessica's death, the jogger attack and charges alleging there was sexually exploitative material in Sigg's home. Sigg's lawyers also want the judge to suppress numerous statements that the teen made to authorities, suggesting that Sigg spoke without being told he could have an attorney. Friday's hearing for Sigg could last most of the day.
