Prosecutors will be allowed to use the statements and evidence obtained from a Greenville man accused of killing Jackson State University student Latasha Norman.
Hinds County Circuit Court Judge Swan Yerger this week denied Stanley Cole's motion to suppress his statements and disallow the physical evidence.
The 25-year-old Cole is accused of killing Norman, his 20-year-old ex-girlfriend, in November 2007. No trial date has been set.
Norman's decomposed body was discovered in a wooded area in Jackson days after she had been reported missing.
