ALFRED, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Testimony in a hearing for a New Hampshire man's bid for a new trial is winding down at the York County courthouse.
Jason Twardus is currently serving a 38-year sentence for the death of Kelly Gorham. He was convicted in October of 2010 for strangling her at her home in Alfred and burying her body in Northern New Hampshire on land owned by his father.
Twardus' attorney Dan Lilley maintains that two alternate suspects could have been involved in Gorham's murder.
They are Gorham's landlord, the late John Durfee and Calvin DeGreenia, a man who lived on the same property as Gorham.
The defense contends that Durfee made statements about the case to another inmate and DeGreenia attacked his girlfriend in a manner similar to the way Gorham was killed.
"These things that are coming to light are putting DeGreenia and Durfee unfortunately who has died, are putting them more in a suspicious position in regards to the responsibility of this death," said Lilley.
A judge is expected to hand down his decision sometime this summer.
