NH Supreme Court to rule on new trial for man convicted of 1971 murder

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — The state Supreme Court will issue a ruling in the case of Robert Breest, who requested a new trial over his conviction four decades ago in the killing an 18-year-old New Hampshire woman.

Breest has denied fatally beating Susan Randall in February 1971 and tossing her partially nude body onto the frozen Merrimack River in Concord. Breest has twice been denied parole because he refuses to admit to the killing. The ruling is expected Friday.

He's attempted to clear his name through DNA evidence, arguing it would show Randall had a violent struggle with at least two men. This would contradict claims that Breest acted alone or that he was one of the killers.

Prosecutors argued against a new trial, arguing DNA test couldn't rule out Breest as the murderer.
