12:01 pm
court heard the first of what will be two arguments involving an appeal from convicted murderer seth mazzaglia. mazzaglia strangled unh student lizzie marriott back in 2012. her body has never been found. good afternoon. i'm sean mcdonald. this first appeal revolved around what the defense will be able to discuss regarding evidence they believe should have been introduced at trial, including the victim's sexual history. wmur's ray brewer is live outside the supreme court, and ray, the attorney general's office is asking for something that's never been done, right? ray: that is the attorney general's office wants to close the supreme court for oral arguments, something that would be unprecedented. in fact, under questioning from one of the judges, the lawyer for marriott said he couldn't cite anywhere in the country where that has been done. underlying it all, what should seth mazzaglia have been able to introduce as evidence during his trial? seth mazzaglia was convicted of murder back in 2014. the jury found that mazzaglia had murdered unh student lizzie marriott back in 2012. marriott's body was never
12:02 pm
conviction, arguing that he should have been able to introduce marriott's prior sexual history at trial, something the trial judge ruled irrelevant. the ag's office says while it is not unusual for some information to be kept sealed, while advocates for keeping that information secret cite new hampshire's rape shield law, which protects a victim from having to disclose that information. the defense lawyer for mazzaglia says that rule doesn't apply at this level. >> the rape shield rule is a testimonial privilege. it's about the experience to answer questions. nobody asks any victims questions on appeal. the court has also said that a concern underlying the rape shield rule is that the information would be missused by juries. there's no jury here. >> under that line of reasoning , all sealed records should be unsealed on appeal to give the public full access to the case. that includes juvenile cases .
12:03 pm
camera review. ray: the defense says without the court ruling in his favor he would be hampered when he tries to make his argument on the merits of what sexual conduct should have been allowed to be introduced. the attorney general's office says that there are ways to allude to the behavior without getting into specifics. the court has taken the matter under advisement. we will have much more on this case beginning at newsnine at 5:00. reporting live, ray brewer, wmur news nine. sean: an emergency situation at keene high school where officials say hazardous materials have been found. keene fire is the scene and the public is asked not to go to the building. school officials say the safety and accountability of all students and faculty is being addressed. we will release more information
