Katherine Cardenas' accused murderer to go to court
The man accused of killing Katherine Cardenas is finally going to trial.
Both prosecutors and defense attorneys met for a hearing to discuss a few details.
Several issues heard in court Wednesday, mainly regarding 33 autopsy photos and whether they should be shown at trial.
The photos, said to be very gruesome but according to prosecutors. They're photos that show exactly what 2-year-old Cardenas went through.
The defense asked that the photos not be used during the trial arguing they would influence jurors to make decisions based on emotion.
The judge later ruled and allowed most of the photos.
Also admitted, a recorded conversation between Arredondo and his father, who is incarcerated at a federal prison.
Two weeks ago, Arredondo's attorneys withdrew the insanity defense but say competency could still be an issue.
Jury selection is set to begin on Monday.
Arredondo faces charges of murder and aggravated sexual assault.
If found guilty, he could face life in prison.
