CONCORD, N.H. – A parole hearing is set for the woman who lured a 19-year-old University of New Hampshire student to her death as a sex offering for her boyfriend.
Twenty-one-year-old Kathryn McDonough was sentenced in July 2013 to 1 1/2 to three years in prison for lying to police after Seth Mazzaglia (mihz-AY'-lee-uh) strangled and raped Elizabeth "Lizzi" Marriott, of Westborough, Massachusetts, at the couple's Dover apartment in October 2012.
McDonough admitted she helped dispose of Marriott's body then testified against Mazzaglia this summer as part of a deal for a lighter sentence.
Members of Marriott's family are expected to attend Thursday's parole hearing. Corrections officials say if parole is granted, McDonough would be released Jan. 13.
Mazzaglia was convicted of murder and is serving a life sentence without possibility of parole.
