MANCHESTER, N.H. — The estranged wife of the New Hampshire man accused of killing his 5-year-old daughter, Harmony Montgomery, returned to the stand on Monday.
Kayla Montgomery, 33, who has a plea deal with the state, began her testimony on Friday.
She offered gruesome testimony as a key star witness in the trial, saying that her husband violently punched the little girl when he flew into a rage on Dec. 7, 2019, shortly before they noticed her lifeless body.
But Adam’s lawyers are attacking Kayla’s credibility because she lied more than once to a grand jury.
Harmony’s body has never been found.
Adam Montgomery is charged with second-degree murder. He told the judge he intends to plead guilty to charges of abuse of a corpse and falsifying evidence.
