Killgore search warrants ordered released

VISTA (CNS) – A judge Wednesday ordered the release of several search
warrants in the case against three people charged in the death of a 22-year-old
Marine wife, whose body was discovered near Temecula in southern Riverside
County.

Several media organizations asked the court to unseal the documents
after Dorothy Maraglino, Louis Ray Perez and Jessica Lynn Lopez were charged in
the death of Brittany Killgore.

Prosecutors and two of the defense attorneys objected to the request.

After hearing arguments, Vista Superior Court Judge Runston Maino
ordered three of 22 warrants released, with the names of witnesses redacted.

The judge, however, said the three warrants would remain sealed until
July 5 to give the District Attorney's Office and defense attorneys time to
appeal.

Maraglino, Perez and Lopez all face murder charges in the case.

Killgore disappeared the night of April 13. Her body was found four days
later.

Prosecutor Patrick Espinoza said Killgore had no connection to the
defendants other than she, at an earlier point in time, accompanied a friend to
Maraglino's Fallbrook home to purchase an item that was for sale online.
