Defense, state spar over evidence in kidnap of teenage girl who returned home after 9 months

Lawyers for a man accused of kidnapping a 14-year-old New Hampshire girl who returned home nine months later want to preserve his house, a storage unit and other evidence collected by the state.

An expedited hearing is scheduled for Wednesday for 34-year-old Nathaniel Kibby, the former machinist charged with snatching Abigail Hernandez on Oct. 9 as she walked home from school. Abigail returned home on July 20.

Kibby's public defender, Jesse Friedman, wants a judge to secure all evidence, including medical records from exams of Abigail, phone and text records, investigative notes and blood, saliva and other bodily substances.

The state argues it's impossible to safeguard the trailer and storage unit without posting a 24-hour guard there and by securing them offsite they'll be better preserved.
