Last month 16-year-old Alyssa Bustamante's requested that she be allowed to wear her "regular clothes" to trial instead of her prison uniform. Yesterday a judge in central Missouri approved Bustamante's request.

The teen is accused of the horrific murder last fall of her nine-year-old neighbor Elizabeth Olten. According to authorities, Bustamante dug a grave days before strangling and stabbing to death the girl because she "wanted to know what it was like to kill someone."

The question now is whether Bustamante will dress in her emo attire for trial or wear a more traditional outfit.
