DOVER, N.H. (AP) — A judge has granted a request to seal statements made by a New Hampshire man suspected of killing a University of New Hampshire sophomore in 2012.
Seth Mazzaglia (Mah-ZALE-yah) was charged with first-degree murder in the disappearance and death of Elizabeth "Lizzi" Marriott of Westborough, Mass. Her body hasn't been found.
Foster's Daily Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/1kBB2ne) Mazzaglia's lawyers say he made involuntary statements during a police interrogation on Oct. 12 and 13, 2012. They say he wasn't advised of his Miranda rights.
The merits of their arguments will be reviewed during the hearing scheduled for Feb. 11-13.
In the meantime, audio and video of the interrogations at various locations, including the Newington police station and Peirce Island in Portsmouth, remain under seal at Strafford County Superior Court.
