Nathaniel Kibby's lawyer says he needs all the evidence preserved at its current location, including his trailer home and a storage unit, because he has so little information on why his client was arrested. The 34-year-old was charged last month with kidnapping Abigial Hernandez last October as she walked home from high school.
Hernandez, now 15, returned home last month.
Kibby is charged with a felony count of kidnapping. He's being held on $1 million cash bail.
The state argues that it's impossible to safeguard the trailer and storage unit without posting a 24-hour guard at the site. They also say that by securing it offsite, it will be better preserved.
