The 17-year-old boy accused of killing Jessica Ridgeway likely will be the first high-profile teenage defendant to test a new law designed to make it more difficult to charge juveniles as adults.

Austin Sigg on Tuesday will be formally charged related to the abduction and death of 10-year-old Jessica and likely for the attempted abduction in May of an adult jogger near Ketner Lake.

Jefferson County District Attorney Scott Storey anticipates charging Sigg, who will turn 18 on Jan. 17, as an adult.

"That's the appropriate thing to do," Storey said Thursday.

Jessica Ridgeway: Jessica's Angels moving ahead with school watch despite Jeffco reluctance

By Michael Roberts Mon., Oct. 29 2012 at 6:38 AM

The proliferation of child-abduction-attempt reports (like one yesterday in Parker) following ten-year-old Jessica Ridgeway's abduction and murder has plenty of people looking for what they can do to make kids safer. One example: Jessica's Angels, a group whose members (including driving force Alex Groen, a Pomona High School junior seen here) will be watching over kids en route to school starting today despite the Jefferson County School District's current reluctance to bless their efforts.

Austin Reed Sigg, Colorado Teen, Charged As Adult In Girl's Killing

By P. SOLOMON BANDA 10/30/12 02:58 PM ET EDT AP

GOLDEN, Colo. -- Prosecutors say a teenager who allegedly confessed to killing a 10-year-old Colorado girl and attacking a runner also sexually assaulted the girl.

Seventeen-year-old Austin Sigg was charged as an adult with 17 counts in both cases Tuesday. They include four murder charges.

~Snipped~

In charging documents, prosecutors said Sigg acted alone in kidnapping, robbing, and sexually assaulting Jessica. The robbery charge involved Jessica's backpack and water bottle, which were found in another suburb three days after she disappeared while walking to school Oct. 5.

"Austin Reed Sigg unlawfully and feloniously, acting alone, committed sexual assault, and in the course of or in furtherance of that crime, caused the death of Jessica Ridgeway," according to court documents.

" The 17-year-old who allegedly confessed to the murder of 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway was formally charged as an adult today in Jefferson County, Colo., court.

Austin Sigg was charged with 17 counts. Eleven of the charges were related to Ridgeway's disappearance and subsequent death, including first-degree murder with deliberation, felony murder, second-degree kidnapping, sexual assault on a child, and robbery.

The other six charges pertained to Sigg's attempted abduction of a 22-year-old jogger in May 2012, and included attempted first-degree murder, sexual assault with criminal intent and second-degree kidnapping.

If he's convicted, Sigg faces a minimum of 40 years in jail before he can be considered for parole. "

I must have been under a rock... I wasn't aware that the autopsy report was back stating that Jessica has been sexually assaulted.. That poor child Crying or Very sad.

I have to question what the 3 hash marks are on the cross that was found with her body! I don't want to jump to assumptions, but it has been nagging at me since we learned of the cross.

I agree Freckles he should be charged with the mutilation of a corpse and illegal transport of a corpse.

I hope that the younger brother is having a psychological work up done on him to ensure that there is no deviance in his psychological make up.

JMOO but this seems way over the top for a first offence.

Yeah, makes you wonder if he was keeping score of his victims. Then again, it could just be symbolic of the 3 crosses at Golgotha, not that I expect him to be that religious.

Teen to Be Tried as Adult for Colo. Girl's Killing

" The judge presiding at a hearing for Austin Sigg, 17, on Tuesday said the defense had waived its right try to move the case to juvenile court. Prosecutors charged Sigg as an adult last month but Sigg's lawyers had the option of asking Judge Stephen Munsinger to move the case to juvenile court."

Anastasiya Bolton

GOLDEN - Austin Sigg will now be housed in the special housing unit at the Jefferson county detention center.

He is the first juvenile detainee in three years to be housed at the detention center.

Jacki Kelley, a spokeswoman for the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department told 9NEWS that Sigg will be escorted everywhere by a deputy.

Sigg will be kept away from all other adult prisoners. He will not be able to see or hear them. When being moved around the facility, the jail staff will have to lock other inmates down while Sigg is in that specific part of the facility. The restrictions will be in place for 53 days, until Sigg turns 18 in January. Then the jail staff will assess what's safe for him.

Was Jessica's body found? Or just trying him because he said he did it? I have not follow this story much, but since he has been charged with killing her, this story needs to be moved out of the missing threads and the title needs to be changed.

Teen accused in girl’s slaying scheduled in court

If convicted as an adult, Sigg faces up to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 40 years.

12/12/12 3:08 am :: Last updated: 12/12/12 3:08 am

GOLDEN | A teen charged with kidnapping and killing a 10-year-old Colorado girl and attacking a runner is scheduled in court Wednesday.



Austin Sigg, 17, has been charged as an adult, including a murder charge in the death of Jessica Ridgeway, who disappeared Oct. 5 as she was walking to school in the west Denver suburb of Westminster. Sigg also is accused in an attack on a 22-year-old woman, who escaped, in Jessica’s neighborhood in May.

The hearing was expected to provide prosecutors and defense attorneys an opportunity to argue procedural matters involving the case. The major issues have already been decided after a judge last month ruled that Sigg would be tried as an adult and that he would be incarcerated in an adult jail.

Sigg, who turns 18 next month, is charged with four counts of murder, two counts of kidnapping, and one count each of sexual assault on a child and robbery in Jessica’s abduction and slaying. He’s charged with attempted murder, attempted sexual assault and attempted second-degree kidnapping in the attack on the runner.

Munsinger has closed the Feb. 22 preliminary hearing for 18-year-old Austin Sigg to the public. He said he wants to ensure a fair trial and to protect the privacy of victims and their families.

Prosecutors and media organizations, including The Associated Press, argue that Munsinger didn't hear evidence or consider alternatives before closing the hearing.

Austin Sigg Trial: Colo. Teen Kept Remains Of 10-Year-Old Kidnapped, Slain Girl In Crawl Space At His Home, Police Say

By P. SOLOMON BANDA 02/22/13 10:39 PM ET EST

(VIDEO)

GOLDEN, Colo. — A Colorado teenager told a 911 dispatcher last fall that he kidnapped and killed a missing suburban Denver school girl and hid her remains in a crawl space at his mother's home, according to a recording played by a prosecutor in court Friday.

The recording was played at a preliminary hearing at which a judge decided there's enough evidence for Austin Sigg to stand trial in both the death of 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway and an attack on a jogger at nearby Ketner Lake in May.

Westminster police Detective Michael Lynch testified at the hearing that Sigg first confessed to his mother, telling her that he kidnapped Jessica as she walked past his car, bound her arms and her legs, placed her in the back seat, drove around for a little bit, then took her to his house.

Austin Sigg On 911 Call: 'I Murdered Jessica Ridgeway. I Have Proof That I Did It.'

By P. SOLOMON BANDA 02/23/13 06:52 AM ET EST

GOLDEN, Colo. -- A search that set parents in the Denver area on edge last fall, had neighbors casting a suspicious eye on neighbors, and left a family grieving the loss of a 10-year-old ended with the teen suspect telling a 911 dispatcher: "I murdered Jessica Ridgeway. I have proof that I did it."

He told the 911 dispatcher that some of Jessica's remains were in the crawl space at his mother's house, according to a recording of the Oct. 23 call played in court during his preliminary hearing Friday. Fifth-grader Jessica disappeared Oct. 5 after she left her house to meet a schoolmate two blocks away so they could walk to school together.

A judge ordered Austin Sigg, 18, to stand trial and be held without bail for Jessica's slaying and a May attack on a jogger at Ketner Lake, which is across the street from Jessica's elementary school. In the attack on the jogger, investigator Michael Lynch testified that Sigg used homemade chloroform concocted with a recipe found on the Internet to attempt to subdue a woman.

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado teen pleaded not guilty Friday to murder and kidnapping in the kidnap-slaying and dismemberment of a 10-year-old girl that panicked Denver-area residents last fall – despite police testimony that the youth had confessed to the crime.

Austin Sigg, 18, stunned a courtroom by entering the not guilty pleas in the death of Jessica Ridgeway in the Denver suburb of Westminster. Sigg also pleaded not guilty to a May attack on a 22-year-old jogger at a lake in Jessica's neighborhood.

Sigg's not guilty pleas came despite his alleged confession and the discovery of some of the girl's remains at his home. He also confessed to the jogger attack, police say.

Trial was set for Sept. 23.

Fox 4 News | Jessica Ridgeway’s family prepares for Colorado murder trial

Posted on: 9:50 pm, September 25, 2013, by Sarah J. Clark





VIDEO at link.

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — It’s been almost a year since the body of Jessica Ridgeway was found dismembered in a Denver Colorado suburb. The man accused of killing her will soon head to trial.

Opening arguments are scheduled for October 3 in Austin Sigg’s murder trial in Colorado. Jessica lived there when she died, but has family in Independence, Mo.
They plan to travel to Colorado for Sigg’s trial.

Ridgeway’s family is still scraping together the money they need to make the trip. While they don’t think justice will truly be served in the case, they say they want to make sure Sigg won’t be able to hurt anyone else.

ABC News 7 | Justice for Jessica Ridgeway: Potential jurors in Austin Sigg trial face questioning

Posted: 09/24/2013 | Deb Stanley

{Snipped}

Sigg's attorneys asked that the trial being moved away from Jefferson County saying in court documents that "massive" news coverage of the case had jeopardized Sigg's right to a fair trial.

However, our partners at the Denver Post reported that the judge denied the request to move the trial.

Opening statements are scheduled to begin Oct. 3 and the trial is expected to last two and a half weeks.

If convicted, Sigg faces life in prison with the possibility of parole after 40 years. Sigg, who is now 18, cannot face the death penalty because he was 17 at the time of the killing.

The Denver Post | Austin Sigg pleads guilty in kidnapping, murder of Jessica Ridgeway

By Jordan Steffen and Ryan Parker

Posted:   10/01/2013 01:16:45 PM MDT37 comments | Updated:   about 4 hours ago

GOLDEN — Nearly one year after 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway disappeared on her way to school, Austin Sigg pleaded guilty on Tuesday in her kidnapping, murder and dismemberment.

A judge accepted the plea, which was entered against the advice of Sigg's attorneys. The plea on just the first-degree murder charge will send him to prison for life with the possibility of parole after 40 years.

A two-day sentencing hearing has been scheduled to start on Nov. 18. Prosecutors said they would argue for consecutive sentences for some charges.

Sigg, 18, pleaded guilty to 15 counts less than 72 hours before opening statements were scheduled to begin in his murder trial.

In July, Munsinger severed the two charges connected with the attack at Ketner Lake — attempted kidnapping and a violent crime involving a weapon — and ruled that those charges will go forward as a separate trial.

I'll just add this to update the article I linked last night.  Apparently, Sigg did plead guilty to the attack on the jogger, too.

Sigg also pleaded guilty Tuesday to a May 2012 attack on a 22-year-old jogger at a lake in Ridgeway's neighborhood.

He faces a minimum sentence of 40 years in prison with the possibility of parole afterward when he is sentenced Nov. 8. Prosecutors asked Judge Stephen Munsinger to impose consecutive sentences so Sigg spends the rest of his life behind bars.

Colorado teen who killed girl to spend life in prison
Updated: Nov 19, 2013

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - A judge on Tuesday ordered a Colorado teenager who killed and dismembered a 10-year-old Denver-area girl to spend the rest of his days behind bars, describing him as "evil" and saying the case that rocked the community "cries out for a life sentence." wrote:
"Something is very broken in Austin Sigg," said Hal Sargent, a chief deputy DA who helped prosecute the case. "It was not something his mother did or did not do. ... There is something simply broken in him that can't be fixed." wrote:

I can't get the video to embed, and it's creepy to hear him speaking so calmly about the terrible things he did, but it's only a short portion.
