GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) -- A teenager who prosecutors say confessed to killing a 10-year-old Westminster girl and attacking a runner has been charged as an adult.

Prosecutors filed 17 counts against Austin Sigg on Tuesday, including murder, robbery and sexual assault on a child.

Defense attorneys anticipate asking that the case be sent to juvenile court. The next hearing will be held Nov. 27.

Jessica disappeared Oct. 5 after leaving her home to meet a friend for a walk to school, prompting a massive search by hundreds of volunteers and police. Authorities found her remains five days later in a park seven miles from Jessica's home.
