The man facing charges that he raped and killed a University of Vermont student last year wants his statements to police kept out of his trial.

Attorneys for 37-year-old Brian Rooney of Richmond filed requests to suppress more than 20 statements Rooney made to police.

Michelle Gardner-Quinn disappeared while walking back to campus from downtown Burlington. Her body was found several days later in Richmond.

Rooney could go on trial before the end of the year.
