Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem wants the judge to throw out evidence from his interview with investigators two days after the attack.

His attorney says the interview wasn’t recorded because of malfunctioning recording equipment and raised questions about whether his client voluntarily spoke with investigators.

Prosecutors say agents took notes during the interview and that Abdul Kareem wasn’t coerced into speaking with investigators.
