Judge unseals documents in school murder plot case

CBS4 (Denver): A judge has released some documents in the case of threats made against Mountain Vista High School by two students.

A hearing for Sienna Johnson, one of the two students, was scheduled to take place on Friday but it was rescheduled to late next month. Before then, the other defendant — Brooke Higgins — will be sentenced. She pleaded guilty late last year.

Documents related to Higgins’ case would have been released on her Feb. 8 sentencing date.

The judge agreed Friday to allow the release of those documents after the prosecution said the public should see them.

The documents were unsealed Friday afternoon.

The arrest affidavit includes details about the plot the two teen girls are accused of planning against the high school in December 2015.
