Debate on sealed records delays UNH student killer's appeal

The Associated Press

CONCORD — The state Supreme Court is giving the state a deadline of mid-August to make its argument that sealed information about a murdered University of New Hampshire woman should remain out of the public eye.

The Thursday order delays oral arguments set to begin this month in Seth Mazzaglia's appeal for his conviction of murdering Elizabeth "Lizzi" Marriott in 2012.

In an unexpected decision last week, the high court ruled information about Marriott's "alleged prior consensual sexual activity" sealed in the trial court should be made public for the appeal. The state attorney general immediately objected, and Marriott's family made a public plea Tuesday for the information to stay private.

A court order issued Thursday gives the state and Mazzaglia's defense until Aug. 15 to file briefs on the unsealing.
