Hearing for Jason Twardus Continues To Determine Whether a New Trail Should be Granted 

Testimony continues today in a hearing to determine whether a New Hampshire man convicted of strangling a nursing student, should be granted a new trial.Jason Twardus was convicted in 2010 of murdering 30-year old Kelly Gorham, then burying her body on property owned by his father in New Hampshire.Twardus’ attorney claims new evidence discovered after the trial could change the verdict.Another man who also lived on the same property as Gorham is being offered as an alternative suspect.That man pleaded guilty to an attempted strangulation assault in August of 2011.Twardus’ attorney argues the alternative suspect was present the night Gorham disappeared.The state believes evidence presented at the first trial was overwhelming and new evidence would not change the outcome.Twardus is currently serving a 38-year prison sentence.
