Arguing that their client made several statements by police involuntarily, defense attorneys in the Alexandra Kogut murder trial asked to suppress evidence in the case.

Justice Daniel J. Doyle denied all three motions by Clayton Whittemore's defense team on January 27, 2014.Whittemore was the boyfriend of SUNY Brockport student and New Hartford native Alexandra Kogut, who was found murdered in her dorm room in 2012.

The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle's David Riley quotes Judge Doyle as saying  "There is no evidence that the members of the New York State Police or Monroe County Sheriff's Office used or threatened use of physical force upon the defendant, made promises to him or otherwise engaged in improper conduct to induce him to make statements."
