The judge said since someone from the youth detention center was not present to answer questions, a ruling could not be made on the motion to reconsider Trejo’s release. The judge did order that Trejo’s step-mother be added to his visitor list. Burson’s father is also asking the court to release police reports to him, so he can submit to his insurance company for an accidental death policy. Both sides are set to be back in court next month.
