DOVER, Delaware — The son of a man who killed his former daughter-in-law and another woman at a Delaware courthouse is seeking to limit evidence in his upcoming trial on federal cyberstalking charges.
Prosecutors allege that David Matusiewicz and his family conspired for years to torment and stalk his ex-wife, Christine Belford, before she and a friend were killed by his father, Thomas, in 2013.
Thomas Matusiewicz's widow and children deny any knowledge that he planned to kill Bedford.
David Matusiewicz's public defenders filed motions Friday to prohibit prosecutors from submitting evidence they say is irrelevant and would inflame or confuse the jury. That includes courthouse surveillance tapes, Belford's prior statements that she feared her ex-husband, and a document, which prosecutors assert is a hit list, that was found in Thomas Matusiewicz's car.
