CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Lawyers for a man sentenced to life without parole for raping and killing a University of New Hampshire student have appealed his convictions to the state Supreme Court, but the arguments aren’t available for public view.

Seth Mazzaglia (muh-ZAYL’-ee-uh) was sentenced for the Oct. 9, 2012, killing of 19-year-old Elizabeth “Lizzi” Marriott of Westborough, Massachusetts.

Mazzaglia denied raping and killing Marriott but said he helped cover up her murder. He was convicted of first-degree murder in 2014.

Mazzaglia’s lawyer filed a motion seeking to file his brief under seal last August, citing records still under seal at the trial court level. The state objected; the issue was sent back to the trial court. Last month, the Supreme Court allowed the brief to be filed under seal, but also ordered a redacted version.

The state must respond by March 11.
