A judge has denied a man's request to have evidence suppressed in his upcoming murder trial. 

Clayton Whittemore is accused of beating his girlfriend, Alexandra Kogut, to death inside her dorm room at the College at Brockport in 2012. 

According to the Monroe County District Attorney's Office, State Supreme Court Justice Daniel Doyle denied a motion from Whittemore's attorney to have incriminating statements his client made to police thrown out.

The attorney also wanted evidence gathered as a result of Whittemore's arrest to be thrown out, saying state troopers lacked probable cause to arrest him at a rest stop on the Thruway.

Whittemore's trial is set to begin in March. Earlier this month, it was delayed for a third time.
