News10NBC will be in court Wednesday to get an update on the case of a Brockport college freshman who was murdered. Her boyfriend, 21-year-old Clayton Whittemore, has a hearing this morning on his insanity defense.

Whittemore is accused of beating 18-year-old Alexandra Kogut to death in her dorm room in September. He has pleaded not guilty.

In November, his attorneys entered a notice of extreme emotional disturbance in the case, commonly known as an insanity plea.

Wednesday's hearing will give his attorneys a chance to argue for the merits of that defense.
