Defense wants police statements of Canadian man suppressed in 1988 Nashua killings
Written by NH1 News on .
NASHUA (AP) - Attorneys for a Canadian man who's awaiting his fourth trial in the 1988 slayings of two New Hampshire women are seeking to suppress statements he had made during an interview with police.
The Telegraph of Nashua reports Anthony Barnaby's defense argued Thursday at a hearing in Nashua that their client's confession to police that he took part in the killings was the "product" of a 20-hour, "relentless interrogation."
Prosecutors say Barnaby was never told he couldn't leave.
Barnaby pleaded not guilty to murder charges in the deaths of Brenda Warner and Charlene Ranstrom. Police say Barnaby and another man stabbed the women to death in October 1988 in the women's Nashua apartment.
Barnaby was tried three times in 1989 and 1990. The trials ended with hung juries.
