OSWEGO COUNTY, N.Y. -- Alan Jones was back in court Thursday as his attorney tried to suppress evidence in his case. Jones is accused of killing 11-year-old Erin Maxwell.
The court heard from four investigators who interviewed Alan Jones the night Erin died. Jones' attorney is trying to get statements Jones made to investigators omitted from evidence in any potential trial.
During testimony, investigators said when they told Jones Erin had died he showed no emotion, replying that Pagans don't view death the same way Christians do. Jones' attorney said his client's religion isn't relevant to the case.
"The fact that he's not a Protestant or he's not a Catholic, that has no bearing on this case. The question here is how did Erin die and that's what we're trying to find out," said defense attorney Salvatore Lanza.
More investigators are expected to give testimony Friday. A judge will issue a ruling once the hearing is over.
