Judge denies motion to remove state prosecutors from Carrillo case

By  | 

BELFAST, Maine (WABI) State prosecutors will be allowed to continue to work on the case against a woman who is charged with murdering her 10-year-old child.

A judge has denied the motion from Sharon Carrillo's defense team to have the Attorney General's Office removed from the case.

The motion was made this week when the defense claimed the prosecution used an illegal subpoena to obtain Carrillo's confidential school records.

Carrillo and her husband, Julio, are accused of beating Marissa Kennedy to death.

The state admitted they missed a step when they submitted a subpoena for school records including a psychological evaluation of Sharon Carrillo.

According to the judge, although prosecutors failed to comply with proper procedures when they obtained the records from New York, it doesn't warrant disqualification.
