(CNN) — The murder case will proceed against Pedro Hernandez — accused of killing 6-year-old Etan Patz, who disappeared on his way to a New York City school bus stop in 1979 — after a motion to toss out the case was denied Wednesday, a court official said.

Harvey Fishbein, Hernandez’s lawyer, said he doesn’t agree with the judge’s decision but is not surprised by it.
