Guam - With the trial set to begin next month in the Dededo gang rape case of two female minors, one of the defendants filed a motion to sever his case.  Oratuch Henry alleges he was never implicated by the two victims and was only mentioned by his co-defendants, Betewen Henry, Helpme Roby, Hen Henry and Gibson Billias. 

The defense also filed a motion to compel discovery or in the alternative, a motion to dismiss.  Oratuch Henry's attorney is seeking police reports, juvenile records of the alleged minor victims, as well as reports from Healing Hearts, Child Protective Services, and experts on evidence. 

Police confiscated an iPad from Oratuch, which purportedly contained pictures of the sexual assaults but were deleted.
