Guam - Superior Court Judge Michael Bordallo heard closing arguments in Luis Seagraves' suppression motion today.  Seagraves is accused of brutally murdering Michelle Limtiaco in the mid-90's and pleaded not guilty to the charges.  The defense has been fighting to have the statements Seagraves made to police back in 1996 suppressed.

Attorney Pete Perez claims his client was held for an unreasonable length of time - three days, in fact, and that Seagraves didn't understand his rights as he was under the influence crystal methamphetamine, marijuana and alcohol.  Prosecutors however argue the statements are admissible as Seagraves told police he was afraid to go home and even waived his right to an attorney.

Judge Bordallo is expected to take the motion under advisement.  He is still considering several defense motions for dismissal.
