Adam Montgomery trial Day 7

Assistant New Hampshire Attorney General Christopher Knowles listens to cross-examination of Forensic Biologist Alan Ackroyd-Isales of DNA Labs International, a state's witness, about DNA samples the state believes to be from Harmony Montgomery during day seven in the Adam Montgomery trial at Hillsborough County Superior Court in Manchester on Feb. 15, 2024. The day opened with Ackroyd-Isales answering questions for over an hour. Montgomery, 34, has been charged with second-degree murder, abuse of a corpse, falsification of evidence and witness tampering in the death of his daughter, Harmony, 5. The prosecution has more than 50 witnesses in the trial, which is expected to last the rest of the month. Montgomery has not been in court since the first day of jury selection, waiving his right to appear for the seventh day in a row. Montgomery is accused of reaching back while driving and delivering a fatal blow to his daughter's face for wetting herself in the backseat of the Chrysler Sebring they were living in.
