Several media outlets are asking a San Diego County judge to unseal search warrants in the murder investigation of Camp Pendleton Marine wife Brittany Killgore.
The Associated Press, which is one of the 10 media organizations seeking to unseal the warrants, reports San Diego County Superior Court Judge Ruston Maino told attorneys today he needed to review the warrants before he could make a ruling.
The judge scheduled another hearing on the issue for next Wednesday.
As Home Post has previously reported, three people, including a Camp Pendleton Marine, have been arrested and charged with first degree murder in the death of Killgore, who was 22-years-old at the time of her death.
The three suspects, Dorothy Grace Marie Maraglino, 36, Staff Sgt. Louis Ray Perez, 45, and Jessica Lynn Lopez, 25, lived together in Maraglino's Temecula home.
Deputy District Attorney Patrick Espinoza has alleged Perez murdered Killgore after Maraglino convinced the young Marine wife to attend a dinner cruise with Perez on April 13, the last night Killgore was seen alive. Her body was found in Riverside County on April 17.
