    N.H. Woman Accused of Witness Tampering in Connection to 19-Year-Old's Murder Trial

    A New Hampshire woman has been arrested and charged with conspiracy in connection to a teen's murder trial.

    Twenty-one-year-old Alexandria Wyant of Rochester was charged with conspiracy to commit tampering with witnesses and informants in connection to the trial of 19-year-old Tristan Wolusky.

    Wolusky is one of three accused of killing 18-year-old Aaron Wilkinson during an alleged attempt to steal drugs and money.

    Wyant will be arraigned Monday morning in Dover District Court.

    Prosecutors say Wolusky, 19-year-old Zachary Pinette and 22-year-old Michael Tatum stabbed Wilkinson to death with a machete and knife in his Madbury home, then proceeded to dump his body in Maine.

    Wolusky has pleaded not guilty to the charges, which include first and second degree murder. He's scheduled for trial this summer and faces life in prison without parole if he's convicted.

    Pinette recently pleaded guilty and Tatum is due in court on April 24.
