The murder trial for Adam Montgomery, who is accused of killing his young daughter, Harmony, is set to begin in a Manchester courtroom on Tuesday. Montgomery faces charges of second-degree murder, assault, witness tampering, falsifying physical evidence, and abuse of a corpse in connection with the death of Harmony, who was 5 at the time of her disappearance in December 2019.
Jury selection is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, with the trial expected to continue daily when court is open through Feb. 29 in the Hillsborough County Superior Court Northern District in Manchester.
According to an earlier affidavit, investigators allege that Adam repeatedly struck Harmony in the head in frustration over a bathroom accident in December 2019. These details were revealed by Adam’s estranged wife, Kayla Montgomery, to Manchester police detectives.
The affidavit further revealed disturbing details of the events following the assault, including the family’s movement from one location to another while carrying Harmony’s remains. It is reported that Harmony’s body has never been found.
The trial has garnered attention due to the shocking details that have emerged since Harmony’s disappearance, including the disposal of her remains in various locations over several months.
In August, Montgomery was sentenced to up to 65 years in prison in connection with theft and sale of firearms after he proclaimed his innocence in Harmony’s death. This new evidence and testimony are crucial in building a case against him in the ongoing murder trial.
The search for Harmony’s remains previously brought investigators to the wetlands along Lynn Marsh Road in Revere, but it ultimately ended without police disclosing if they found any evidence related to Harmony.
The ongoing investigation and trial are expected to bring closure and justice for Harmony Montgomery, and further developments are anticipated as more information becomes available.
As the trial progresses, potential leads and witnesses may come forward, shedding light on the circumstances surrounding Harmony’s tragic death. This case of profound tragedy and unanswered questions is one that grips the community and continues to unfold.
