Witnesses share chilling details in Mazzaglia trial

Mazzaglia, 31, is facing first- and second-degree murder charges in the death of Marriott, a 19-year-old from Westborough, Mass. The pace of his ongoing trial accelerated Tuesday after nearly 10 full days of testimony by McDonough.
“You cannot tell from your examination whether someone was sexually assaulted,” public defender Melissa Davis said in cross-examination. Staples agreed.
McDonough has said that she and Mazzaglia dragged Marriott’s body, wrapped in a tarp, to an overlook, where Mazzaglia pushed it over a railing, onto rocks. McDonough has said she then pushed Marriott’s body into the water.
Johnson, of Portsmouth Pilots, said in his job ensuring the safe navigation of deep-draft vessels in the Newington and Portsmouth area, “we transit by Peirce Island” on a daily basis in busy periods. He said he’s been working on the commercial waterfront in Portsmouth since 1987.
“Even with a large ship, if you hit that area when there’s a strong current, it’ll actually move the ship around,” Johnson said.
Johnson said the outgoing tide was “at its strongest” at that time, with southeasterly currents off Peirce Island.
McDonough is serving a 1½- to three-year prison term after pleading guilty last July to charges including witness tampering and hindering the investigation, as part of a plea agreement. She has testified that she helped cover up the murder and rape of Marriott.
