Amazon Alexa recordings may be used in investigation

FARMINGTON, N.H. A judge ruled that recordings from an Amazon Alexa can be used by authorities to investigate the stabbing deaths of two women in New Hampshire.

Timothy Verrill of Dover, N.H. was accused of first-degree murder in the deaths of 48-year-old Christine Sullivan and 32-year-old Jenna Pellegrini at a Farmington home in 2017.

Verrill pleaded not guilty and faces trial.

Prosecutors believe there are Echo recordings capturing the attack on Sullivan and the removal of her body that could be found on the server maintained by Amazon.

An Amazon spokesperson said Friday it won't release customer information without "a valid and binding legal demand properly served on us."
