GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - A judge says a teen accused of killing 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway and also attacking a jogger months earlier will have two trials.
A Jefferson County District Court judge ruled Friday that Austin Sigg will have one trial of charges alleging he kidnapped, killed and dismembered Jessica and one on charges alleging he tried to kidnap a jogger in May. He has pleaded not guilty.
Meanwhile, the judge says jurors who will decide the case against Sigg will be allowed to see evidence that he searched for and accessed websites about child sex abuse, child torture and child dismemberment, a year before Jessica's death. Sigg's attorneys wanted to block the evidence.
