DOVER, N.H. (AP) — The state of New Hampshire is seeking extra time to secure an indictment against the man charged in the death of a University of New Hampshire student.
The Portsmouth Herald (http://bit.ly/VjXaEl ) reports that the New Hampshire attorney general’s office has asked the Strafford County Superior Court to give it more time than the usual 90 days to persuade a grand jury to hand up an indictment against 30-year-old Seth Mazzaglia ("maz-ZAY-lee-ah’’ )of Dover.
Authorities charged Mazzaglia in the October death of 19-year-old Elizabeth Marriott of Westborough, Mass. This week, they arrested and charged Mazzaglia’s girlfriend, Kathryn McDonough of Portsmouth, with lying to authorities about her and Mazzaglia’s whereabouts on Oct. 9.
Papers filed in court indicate investigators are still following leads, conducting forensic testing and interviewing witnesses.
