ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Attorneys for a teenager accused of beating a homeowner to death during a burglary asked a judge to move him out of jail into a rehab center.

Diminovich has remained locked up pending trial. Zeutzius’ family was in court where the suspect’s attorney asked that he be transferred to the Sequoia Rehabilitation Center.
The family was there to express their concerns.
Diminovich and the other teens were tied to a series of burglaries in the area.
No word yet on the judge’s decision.
