ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A judge will consider whether to bar from trial a former Virginia Tech student’s confession in connection with the slaying of a 13-year-old girl.

According to news outlets, Judge Robert Turk said Wednesday that he’ll review lawyers’ briefs and go through audio and video from the 27 hours 19-year-old Natalie Keepers spent with investigators. He says he will decide before the trial, which is set to begin March 27.

Keepers is charged with being an accessory to kidnapping and murder and with helping hide the body of seventh-grader Nicole Lovell last year. Nineteen-year-old David Eisenhauer is charged with first-degree murder, abduction and hiding Lovell’s body. His trial is also scheduled for March.
