Suspects Due In Court

Lawyer: Suspects investigated for murder, kidnapping in Alabama teen's disappearance

In Aruba, a defense attorney says two former security guards are under investigation for murder and kidnapping following the disappearance of an Alabama student.

The lawyer, who represents the two men, says a judge will determine Wednesday whether authorities have enough evidence to continue to hold them.

They have not been charged, and their lawyer says they "categorically" deny any connection to 18-year-old Natalee Holloway, who vanished more than a week ago.

Earlier, authorities said they were not ruling out accidental death in the Holloway case, while the young woman's parents continue to hold out hope that she is still alive. Police and FBI agents searched for Holloway for a ninth day Tuesday, but a lack of any solid leads is hindering progress.
