New Hampshire man convicted of killing teen asks to skip sentencing

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/12/2014 - 03:38
By Ted Siefer MANCHESTER N.H. (Reuters) - A New Hampshire judge is expected to rule on Tuesday whether to compel a man found guilty last month of raping and murdering a college student to attend a hearing this week where he will face a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole. An attorney for Seth Mazzaglia, 31, filed a motion in Strafford County Superior Court late last week asserting "his constitutional right to waive his presence" at the hearing. Prosecutor Peter Hinckley argued that the request was "vastly outweighed by the countervailing interests of ... the court system, the prosecution, the victims of the defendant's crimes, and society as a whole." Last month, Mazzaglia was found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Elizabeth Marriott, who was a 19-year-old student at the University of New Hampshire, after a month-long that featured lurid details of the occult, sadomasochism and romantic betrayal. Mazzaglia was accused of having his girlfriend, Kathryn McDonough, lure Marriott to their apartment so he could have sex with her.

"A notice of disposition is generally filed by the defense to notify the court that an agreement between the prosecution and the defense has been reached, where the defendant has agreed to plead guilty," Jeff Dorschner, spokesman for U.S. Attorney John Walsh, said in a statement.
