FILE - This booking photo released by the Westminster, Colo., Police Department shows Austin Reed Sigg. Sigg, 17, is accused of killing Jessica Ridgeway, who disappeared on the morning of Oct. 5 as she was walking to school. The Colorado Supreme Court Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013, overturned a judge's decision to close a key hearing for Sigg. The court sided with media organizations that argued the judge failed to show that holding the hearing in public would jeopardize Austin Sigg's right to a fair trial or consider other ways to protect Sigg's rights without shutting out the public. Judge Stephen Munsinger in December said he closed the hearing because he wanted to ensure a fair trial and to protect the privacy of victims and their families.
