A judge will rule next month in the case of a former New Orleans jail guard facing charges over a teen's suicide.

Kerianna Alexcee is accused of malfeasance in the death of 15-year-old Jaquin Thomas who hanged himself with a mattress cover in his cell in 2016.

Alexcee allegedly failed to follow jail policy and check on the teen every 15 minutes.  According to NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, she's seeking the dismissal of charges, claiming she was never trained properly about the mandate.
