WORCESTER, MASS. (WHDH) - The man accused of killing Vanessa Marcotte is due back in Worcester Superior Court for a suppression hearing on Wednesday.

Lawyers for Angelo Colon-Ortiz want the judge to throw out DNA evidence in the case, saying investigators violated his constitutional rights.

His lawyers allege that Colon-Ortiz did not understand police when they took his DNA because his native language is Spanish.

Colon-Ortiz is accused of killing Marcotte while she was out for a run in Princeton in 2016.

He was arrested months later and has been charged with murder.
