Marin, 26, is facing alternative counts of second-degree murder and manslaughter for allegedly assaulting Brielle Gage multiple times on Nov. 24, 2014, and Nov. 25, 2014, at their home on Oak Street.
Marin appeared in court for the first time in several months, crying occasionally as police took the stand and testified at Hillsborough County Superior Court.
Although Marin’s defense team is claiming that Marin suffered from depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder prior to Brielle’s death, three members of the Nashua Police Department stated in court that they had no trouble communicating with Marin in the hours after Brielle was discovered unconscious and badly bruised.
Attorneys Justin Shepherd and Paul Garrity filed motions to suppress evidence seized pursuant to two search warrants executed at Marin’s residence, in addition to other motions seeking to suppress statements Marin made to police.
“She was under mental duress at the time,” said Shepherd, adding the scope of the warrantt was broad and lacked clarity.
