Violent evidence allowed in Sigg murder case

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - Jurors deciding the case against a teenager accused of killing 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway will be allowed to see evidence that Austin Sigg was searching for and viewing child pornography for more than a year before the girl was killed.

The Denver Post reports that a Jefferson County District Court judge denied a motion from Austin Sigg's attorneys to block the evidence.

Prosecutors say Sigg searched for and accessed websites about child sex abuse, child torture and child dismemberment for more than a year. The graphic websites were accessed from a computer at Sigg's home between visits to the Arapahoe Community College website, prosecutors say.

A female jogger will also be allowed to identify the teenager. The Denver Post reports a Jefferson County District Court judge denied a motion from Austin Sigg's attorneys that would have withheld the identification

Sigg is accused of kidnapping, killing and dismembering Ridgeway in October. He has pleaded not guilty.
