ELKTON, Md. (AP) — A Cecil County Circuit judge has denied requests to exclude DNA and cell phone evidence in the trial of a man accused of kidnapping and killing an 11-year-old girl. 

The ruling was made at a motions hearing for Thomas J. Leggs Jr., 31, on Wednesday. 

Leggs is charged with murder and other offenses in the kidnapping and slaying of Sarah Foxwell. Her burned remains were found Christmas Day 2009 in Wicomico County. His trial has been moved to Cecil County.

    Take the time to look up this guy’s criminal record- OMG, it takes more than one page! He is already a registered child sex offender and has been convicted of many sex related crimes inclding rape, domestic violence, burglary and on and on. He should have been put in jail and had the key thrown away a long time ago.

    Obviously the only reason he would want to have that evidence thrown out is because it supports the charges against him. Leggs is a career criminal and there is no reason he should ever see the light of day again as soon as he is convicted.

    See the light of day? I don’t think he deserves to see anything other than the execution chamber upon conviction. He is a proven repeat offender/career criminal who stops at nothing to get his way, including murder of a child. He deserves nothing short of death – but of course, if O”Malley has his way, he will still be sitting on MD’s death row decades from now, so what good would it do?!?! Still pondering what is wrong with our justice system when we choose to euthanize innocent animals every single day in this country due to overpopulation & lack of available shelf space, but willingly keep alive the most heinous, despicable people in society – for the life of me, I will NEVER understand that one!
