Prosecutors granted phone access in woman's murder
NEWPORT, N.H. (AP) - Prosecutors have been granted access to personal cellphone records in the case of a Vermont man accused of killing his wife in New Hampshire on the day she filed for divorce.
The Eagle Times reports a Sullivan County Superior Court judge recently granted the state's motions for access to access to records from a phone belonging to James Robarge of Saxtons River, his estranged wife, Kelly Robarge, and Richard Lucias, a friend of Kelly Robarge.
James Robarge's lawyers objected to the state's request, saying Robarge has consistently asserted his innocence.
Prosecutors said Kelly Robarge's phones have not been found, but that other cellular data might provide the state with information to find a Tracfone she had.
Robarge was charged with first- and second-degree murder last year.
