KUSA -   A teen accused of kidnapping and killing 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway had a hearing Friday to discuss motions filed in the case.

Austin Sigg's lawyers wanted the judge to suppress numerous statements, suggesting in some cases that Sigg spoke without being told he could have an attorney during the investigation.

No ruling was made by the end. Moving the trial was not brought up at Friday's hearing. 

Sigg is accused of killing Ridgeway of in 2012 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.

His next hearing is set for July 10.
