 A Seattle man will not be able to use old FBI records to help prove he did not kidnap and kill a 7-year-old Illinois girl in 1957, the Associated Press reports [2].

A judge ruled the records relied on hearsay and shouldn’t be¬†admissible.

The records indicate Jack McCullough was in Chicago on the day Maria Ridulph went missing, the AP reported.

The remains fo Maria Ridulph were found less than a year later, about 120 miles away.

McCullough’s trial starts Monday, according to the AP.
