Defense attempts to shift blame to former girlfriend in the death of Elizabeth 'Lizzi' Marriott
While McDonough’s actions are “inexcusable,” Hinckley said, “she did not rape Lizzi and she did not kill Lizzi — accidentally or otherwise.”
Mazzaglia is facing murder charges as well as conspiracy and criminal solicitation charges.
Barth said that it was McDonough who used an intense sexual act known as “breath play” to control and regulate Marriott’s breathing while the UNH student was restrained by a harness and Mazzaglia was engaged in sexual acts with both women.
Barth said Mazzaglia panicked after being overwhelmed by fear while McDonough went into “self-preservation mode” after Marriott was smothered — not strangled. As a result, he said Mazzaglia engaged in terribly misguided acts — including disposing of Marriott’s body on Peirce Island in Portsmouth — to cover up the death out of love and concern for McDonough.
He added: “Her desire was not to dominate Seth, but another woman.”
Hinckley said McDonough was 17 and still in high school when she met Mazzaglia, a decade her senior. He said being dominated by Mazzaglia as part of their relationship helps explain — but not justify — her actions in covering up Marriott’s death.
“He wanted — he demanded — another female to dominate,” Hinckley said of Mazzaglia. “He, the master, was not to be denied.”
“That is not what happened during the course of the interview,” Hinckley said, referring to Mazzaglia’s statements about being involved in “breath play.”
The trial is scheduled to resume today at 9 a.m. in Strafford County Superior Court.
