Amazon Alexa recordings may be used in investigation

Amazon ordered to hand over Echo recordings in double murder case

Authorities in New Hampshire are hopeful a smart speaker will be smart enough to convict a double murderer.

An Amazon Echo may have captured audio of a cold-blooded killing in New Hampshire, and prosecutors have won the rights to the recordings, a judge ruled Friday.

She was stabbed eight times and her skull fractured in the kitchen.

Verrill pleaded not guilty and faces trial.

"As part of the normal functioning of an Echo electronic device activated either intentionally or accidentally by 'wake up words, ' audio recordings are made of the moment when the device is activated", Ward wrote.

The bodies of the women were found in the backyard under a tarp and a knife was found buried nearby, cops said.

Various public figures, including Megyn Kelly, said things like this need to stop. "His family does not deserve this", she added. According to a police report, a group of demonstrators gathered outside Carlson's Northwest Washington home Wednesday night.

Verrill was arrested in February 2017, having fled across state lines to Lawrence, Massachusetts, and subsequently charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of reckless second-degree murder, and five counts of falsifying physical evidence in connection with the two deaths and his actions in concealing them.

Two women were found murdered at a home in Farmington, N.H., on January 29, 2017.

Police testified at a bail hearing in August 2017 that Verrill knew Sullivan's boyfriend, Dean Smoronk, who owned the house, and that Verrill had access to the home's security code.

Timothy Verrill, 34, has been charged with murder for the deaths of two women found stabbed at a friend's home in Farmington, N.H., on January 29, 2017.

"Investigators believe Sullivan was attacked in the kitchen of 979 Meaderboro Road where the Echo was located, and prosecutors believe there is probable cause to believe there is evidence on the Echo, such as audio recordings of the attack and events that followed it", CBS Boston reported, citing court documents.
