After murder conviction in Strafford County Superior Court , Mazzaglia waits for final words
Seth Mazzaglia, 31, automatically faced life in prison without the possibility of parole once a jury convicted him Friday of two counts of first-degree murder in the death of Elizabeth "Lizzi" Marriott, 19. Still to be determined is Mazzaglia's punishment for conspiring to falsify physical evidence and to commit witness tampering.
"The victim's family will have the right to speak at the sentencing hearing about the impact of the loss of their loved one," said Jonathan Cohen, an attorney with Cohen & Winters in Concord.
The 19-day trial was full of graphic testimony of a strip poker game, sexual bondage going too far and the prosecution claim that Mazzaglia strangled Marriott after she rebuked his sexual advances.
"If you are dead, you cannot correct a mischaracterization," Marriott said.
Senior Assistant Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin declined to comment on the plea deal and other matters still pending in the case. Mazzaglia is expected to face trial on a criminal-solicitation charge for allegedly trying to get another inmate at the Strafford County jail in December 2012 to participate in a violent, armed escape.
McDonough's deal also made for a prime target as defense questioned her credibility during days of heated cross-examination. She admitted to inviting Marriott to the apartment at the request of Mazzaglia, who wanted another woman to join the couple in sex. McDonough said Marriott agreed to a game of strip poker, but rebuked Mazzaglia's advances.
The defense attempts to discredit McDonough and her testimony were unsuccessful with the jury, which began deliberating Thursday.
