11 jurors chosen so far in Mazzaglia trial on Marriott murder charge
Assistant Attorney Geoffrey Ward said 11 jurors have been selected so far.
For the trial to start on its scheduled date of May 27, there must be a dozen jurors and four alternates. The fifth day of jury selection is set to resume today at 9 a.m.
Judge Steven Houran explained to potential jurors Monday that both the prosecution and the defense can ask any question during the selection process.
Ward and Mazzaglia’s attorneys — Joachim Barth and Melissa Davis of the New Hampshire Public Defenders Office — inquired about whether the judgment of potential jurors could or would be influenced by the media coverage, “polyamorous” or open relationships, role-playing during sex or acts involving bondage, domination and sadomasochism.
