NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. -- The details in the murder trial of a New Hartford man accused of murdering his girlfriend in her College at Brockport dorm room are about to become more public.
A judge ruled Thursday that the 911 calls and two videotaped police interviews with Clayton Whittemore will be released to the media.
These calls allegedly happened the morning Alex Kogut was found dead in her dorm room.
Whittemore is accused of beating Kogut to death then leaving the scene in September of 2012.
"By releasing this evidence he is following a very long tradition in American jurisprudence to allow people and the press to have access to statements that have been played in open court like these were," said Christopher Thomas, Attorney for the Media.
Whittemore's defense attorney said he's concerned the pre-trial publicity could jeopardize a fair trial for his client.
Whittemore's trial is set to begin in March.
When we receive copies of those released calls and interviews, we will bring them to you.
