MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A judge is refusing to suppress statements made by a Kenmare woman accused in the death of her 13-year-old son, who died weighing just 21 pounds.

Jessica Jensen could be sentenced to life in prison if she’s found guilty of murder and child neglect. Her attorney asked Judge Gary Lee to suppress evidence authorities gathered during interviews and a search of Jensen’s home before she was arrested.

KXMC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1NTfDnF ) that Lee refused, saying Jensen’s rights were not violated.

Defense attorney Tyler Morrow also wants Jensen’s trial moved to eastern North Dakota because of extensive news coverage of the case. Lee says he wants to first begin the process of trying to seat a jury in Ward County, to see if there are enough people there who meet juror qualifications.
