Defense questions motives of Mazzaglia's ex-girlfriend
“No,” she replied.
Barth then cited transcripts of a November 2012 conversation McDonough had with Roberta Gerkin, a former psychic and friend of Mazzaglia’s. Barth said McDonough told Gerkin a “spirit” was “leading” her and struggling for control of her body.
Mazzaglia, 31, faces first- and second-degree murder charges in the death of UNH student Elizabeth “Lizzi” Marriott, 19, after a game of strip poker in the Dover apartment that Mazzaglia and McDonough shared.
Barth said during that meeting, McDonough told him Marriott died at least partially of natural causes after participating in sexual acts with her and Mazzaglia.
When McDonough agreed, Barth noted that the changes to McDonough’s version of events that night came while McDonough was engaged in pursuing an immunity agreement that would reduce her years in prison and prevent her from facing any other related charges.
McDonough is serving a 1½- to three-year prison term after pleading guilty to charges including witness tampering and hindering the investigation. She has testified that she helped cover up the murder of Marriott.
In the trial’s opening statements May 28, Barth told jurors it was McDonough, not Mazzaglia, who killed Marriott that night.
