Man indicted in NH strangulation case

LACONIA, N.H. (AP) -- A New Hampshire man has been indicted on second-degree murder charges in the June strangulation death of a fellow resident of Laconia boarding house for the mentally ill.

Twenty-year-old Kasey Riley had been scheduled for a hearing Monday to determine whether he is competent to aid in his own defense. Now that the case has been bound over to superior court, that hearing may be postponed.

Riley was charged after police were called to a house owned by Genesis Behavioral Health for a report of a non-responsive person. They found 27-year-old Zachary March dead.

The Citizen reports ( the indictment alleges that Riley either negligently killed March or that he recklessly caused the victim's death under circumstances manifesting an extreme indifference to the value of human life, by strangling him.

Shortly after his arrest, Riley's sister, Debra Riley, said her brother had worked with many agencies that specialize in mental illness. She said a few days earlier, he sought help at Lakes Region General Hospital and was transferred to the state hospital for a day before being released. She said he did not appear to be agitated or upset when she spoke with him.
