Evidence hearing set for woman in UNH case
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) -- A 19-year-old woman accused of lying about her whereabouts the day a University of New Hampshire student was killed is returning to court.
Kathryn McDonough of Portsmouth is charged with hindering prosecution and conspiracy in connection with the disappearance and death of 19-year-old UNH sophomore Elizabeth Marriott, of Westborough, Mass.
Prosecutors say McDonough lied when she said she and 30-year-old Seth Mazzaglia (maz-ZAY-lee-ah )of Dover had no contact with Marriott on Oct. 9, the day she disappeared.
Prosecutors say Mazzaglia, who is charged with second-degree murder, suffocated or strangled Marriott.
McDonough was arrested Christmas Eve. She's due in Portsmouth District Court Wednesday for a hearing on whether prosecutors have enough evidence to try her.
Her lawyer says no decision has been made on whether to waive the hearing.
