Auburn Woman’s Lawyer Seeks To Seal Documents in Murder Case

Updated 1 year ago

An attorney for the Auburn woman charged with killing her 2-year-old daughter has asked a judge to seal all search warrant affidavits associated with the case after a newspaper requested the documents. Justice Ann Murray is expected to rule on the request Wednesday. Leanna Norris is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to killing Loh Melody Grenda, whose body was found in a car in Stetson on June 23. Authorities have not said how the girl died. The Portland Press Herald, asked for the documents on Tuesday. A lawyer for the paper says it’s important for such documents to be public so the government can’t search and seize for private reasons. The 24-year-old Norris’ lawyer says release of the affidavits could be “detrimental” to her client’s case.
