Swanson said questions about whether Morales’ parents knew about the pregnancy don’t have much bearing on the case.
“From my perspective, it doesn’t really change anything,” Swanson said. “But we haven’t got any new information because the parents aren’t talking to us anymore.”
Morales remains without bond in Benzie County’s jail. No trial date has been scheduled, but Swanson said a final status conference before trial is scheduled for Jan. 22.
