GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) -- Moving the trial of a teen accused of kidnapping and killing a suburban Denver girl are among the many issues up for a hearing in Golden.

Friday's hearing for Austin Sigg could last most of the day.

He's accused of killing 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway of Westminster last year and attacking a jogger before that.

Siggs' lawyers say in court documents 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, suggesting in some cases that Sigg spoke without being told he could have an attorney.
