GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - A judge is considering what evidence will be allowed at the trial of an 18-year-old accused of having a sexual relationship with a missing Greeley girl later found dead.

Robert Montoya appeared in court Thursday for a hearing in preparation for his trial in March. He is charged with sexual assault on a child, but hasn't been charged in Kayleah Wilson's death.

Judge Marcelo Kopcow is considering whether to allow entries from Kayleah's diary to be admitted as evidence. Her mother testified Thursday she became angry after she said she found out Kayleah and Montoya were involved. Kopcow must also decide whether her statements to police about the relationship can be admitted.

No suspects have been named in Kayleah's death.
