WASHINGTON (AP) -- A judge is hearing arguments in the case of a District of Columbia woman who's been missing since August and is presumed dead.
Lawyers are expected to argue in Superior Court on Wednesday about whether the police department should be compelled to search a Virginia landfill for the body of Latisha Fraizer. One of the people charged in Frazier's death is seeking to force the department to search the landfill in hopes that recovering the body could bolster his defense.
The D.C. police department says searching the landfill would be too dangerous and expensive with only a minimal change of success.
Judge William Jackson is scheduled to hear arguments Wednesday.
