Sigg’s Lawyers Want Trial Moved Out Of Jefferson County

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) – Lawyers for a teen accused of killing a Westminster girl, as well as attacking a jogger months earlier, want his trial moved out of Jefferson County.

Lawyers for Austin Sigg say in court documents that “massive” news coverage of the case has jeopardized his right to a fair trial.

They are seeking separate trials on charges stemming from the death of 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway of Westminster last year, the attack on the jogger, 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.
