NASHUA — A key witness in a 3-year-old's murder will remain in jail until the trial next month.
Michael Rivera, 32 of Hudson, is the key witness in Katlyn Marin's upcoming murder trial. He was supposed to be released on Friday, but the judge ruled that he must not be released before testifying about the death of Marin's daughter, Brielle Gage.
Rivera told authorities Marin had been using cocaine the night before her daughter died at their Nashua apartment. Recent court filings indicate Marin’s bench trial will begin on Aug. 15, and is expected to last about 10 days, according to the Union Leader.
Marin is accused of beating her daughter, Brielle Gage, and not seeking medical attention for her daughter's injuries, which resulted in her death back in November 2014. Marin is facing second-degree murder and manslaughter charges.
Rivera has worked with the police in the past resulting in past charges dropped.
Rivera was also indicted on two counts of second-degree assault against an 8-year-old boy, one of Marin's four sons, which were dropped days before jury selection was to begin last year.
At this time, Marin claims that Rivera is the one responsible for her daughter's death.
