DOVER (AP) – A juror on
the panel that convicted Seth Mazzaglia, 31, of raping and killing a University of New Hampshire student says the jury believed the state’s key witness.

Maria Clifford was one of 12 jurors who convicted Mazzaglia on Friday of killing Elizabeth “Lizzi” Marriott, 19, of Westborough, Mass.

Clifford said the jury believed Kathryn McDonough, 20, Mazzaglia’s girlfriend, who admitted luring Marriott to their apartment, then helping Mazzaglia get rid of the body.

She said jurors thought McDonough had built a life based on lies, but once on the stand, “had nothing left to lose” and told the truth. Clifford also said
McDonough’s effort to reconnect with her mother influenced the jury.

Clifford said to ensure an open mind, she treated Mazzaglia as if he were a family member.
