Circuit Judge Richard Aguirre denied the motion to suppress evidence gathered during the Robbie Mueller's interviews with police in July 2010 regarding the murder of Sidnee Stephens.

Mueller is currently charged with four counts of first degree murder, one count of aggravated kidnapping, two counts of home invasion, one count of residential burglary, one count of kidnapping and one count of concealment of a homicide death.

A bench trial has been set for Thursday, Sept. 13.

Two other Pinckneyville teens were charged in the murder of Sidnee Stephens. Carl Dane pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 60 years in prison. He then committed suicide in Perry County Jail the night before he was to be transferred to the Illinois Department of Corrections.

James Glazier was found guilty in a stipulated bench trial July 30. He is to be sentenced Sept. 13 in Perry County Court. Both the prosecution and defense have agreed to a 60 year sentence.
