The case against Karen Read, the Mansfield woman accused of killing her Boston police officer boyfriend, is due back in court Friday morning for a hearing on several new motions.

Prosecutors say Read hit John O’Keefe with her car and left him to die in the snow as she dropped him off at the home of another Boston police officer in Canton on Jan. 29, 2022. Her lawyers have argues that she was framed, and that O’Keefe was beaten to death.

Read’s attorneys are now asking the court to return $80,000 in bail and release Read free on personal recognizance. The defense team is also asking for data on Canton’s snow plows and recordings on a Google Nest camera that the owner, Brian Albert, allegedly owned but said he had not yet installed when O’Keefe was arrested. deceased.

Prosecutors, meanwhile, are seeking television footage of interviews Read gave to NBC’s “Dateline” and ABC’s “Nightline.” They also filed a motion requesting security footage from outside Read’s parents’ home in Dighton, dating to the day O’Keefe died.

Investigators previously said they spoke with Read at his parents’ home that day and saw his SUV parked outside with a broken tail light.
