Prosecutors to file charges in Ridgeway case

DENVER (AP) - A teenager who prosecutors say confessed to killing a 10-year-old Westminster girl and attacking a runner at a nearby lake is due in court.

Prosecutors on Tuesday are expected to charge 17-year-old Austin Sigg as an adult in the slaying of Jessica Ridgeway and in a separate attack on a 22-year-old woman.

Jessica disappeared Oct. 5 after leaving her home to meet a friend for a walk to school. Her house is about a mile from where Sigg lived with his mother.

Police received a phone call from Sigg's mother last week, and that's what led to his arrest.

Sigg is being held without bail on suspicion of murder and kidnapping in the death of Jessica, and on attempted murder and attempted kidnapping charges in the case of the runner.
