ALFRED — Closing arguments are expected to begin in a few minutes at the murder trial of Jason Twardus at York County Superior Court.

The trial has been ongoing since Sept. 13 at York County Superior Court.

Twardus, 29, of Rochester, N.H., is charged with killing Kelly Gorham, his ex-fiancee, on August 8, 2007. Prosecutors claim Twardus strangled Gorham at her apartment in Alfred, then buried her body on a remote piece of land owned by his father in northern New Hampshire. Police found Gorham’s body during a search of that land three weeks later.

Twardus’ defense team says two alternative suspects, men with criminal records who had dinner and drinks with Gorham on the night before she went missing, were responsible for her death.

Attorney Daniel Lilley also says a jury in Maine cannot convict Twardus if the state cannot prove she was actually killed in Maine, and not in New Hampshire as the defense lawyers have suggested.
