NEW: Hossencofft asking judge to throw-out his plea and life sentence

(Albuquerque) KRQE-TV reports today that convicted killer Diazien Hossencofft is asking a judge to vacate his sentence.

KRQE’s webite states,

Hossencofft claims prosecutors were colluding with Albuquerque Police to hide evidence that would’ve exonerated him and his mistress, Linda Henning. Henning is also serving time in prison for the murder.

According to KRQE’s story, Hossencofft’s attorney John McCall appeared before a judge today, and asked for a six month extension to prepare for the case, adding that the case “involves global implications.”

KRQE reports that Judge Alisa Hart granted the extension.

Girly Chew Hossencofft was last seen on September 9, 1999.

In the months leading up to her disappearance, Girly increasingly feared for her life.

She signed-up for, and participated in, martial arts classes. Girly specifically asked her instructors to teach her how to defend herself against more than one attacker.

On August 27, 1999, Girly turned 36-years-old.

FBI Special Agent John Schum contacted Girly on her birthday. Schum asked her about the child Diazien had put up for adoption, 3-year-old Demetri Hossencofft.

Just twelve days later, Girly contacted Schum. She expressed that she was desperate. Was there anything the FBI could do to protect her?

Girly disappeared the following day.

Schum was now investigating a presumed kidnapping and murder. It was the first time he’d ever met his victim in such a case.

Excerpt from September Sacrifice

On September 10, 1999—just one day after she was last seen—Girly’s bloodstained clothing, strands of her hair, and duct tape were found along a remote highway about 120 miles southwest of Albuquerque.

Investigators conducted a high-profile search in that remote location west of Magdalena on June 24 and June 25, 2000. The area includes countless abandoned mines.

A much smaller, low-profile search for Girly’s body also unfolded in a very remote area north of Magdalena on July 7, 2000.

Girly’s remains have never been found.
