DEDHAM, MASS. (WHDH) - A Mansfield woman accused of backing her SUV into her boyfriend and killing him was back in court on Thursday.
Defense attorneys for Karen Read asked a judge in Dedham to have evidence in the case preserved for independent, forensic testing.
Read has pled not guilty to second-degree murder charges in the case involving the death of 46-year-old John O’Keefe.
A 16-year veteran of the Boston Police department, O’Keefe was found unresponsive in a snowbank by authorities outside of a Canton home back in January.
Prosecutors allege Read hit him with her car after a night of drinking, apparently making a three-point turn when O’Keefe got out of the car.
