Man who allegedly strangled housemate on McGRath Street in June indicted

LACONIA — A Belknap County grand jury had indicted a former McGrath Street man for two counts of second-degree murder for allegedly strangling his former housemate while the two were living at an unsupervised residential home.

Each count represents a different theory of the June 10 murder — one that Kasey Riley, 20, allegedly recklessly caused the death of Zachary March and one that he negligently caused the death of Zachary March.

Little is known about Riley other than his family's statements that he had been living at the residential home that is managed by Genesis Behavioral Health for a short period of time.

Riley's family members have also said that he had checked himself into to the Emergency Room at the Lakes Region General Hospital a short time prior his March's death and was taken to the N.H. State Hospital in Concord but was released after one day in Concord.

N.H. Assistant Attorney General Geoffrey Ward is prosecuting the case. Riley is being held without bail at the Belknap County House of Corrections.
