BELFAST, Maine — In a three-hour interview conducted the day after 10-year-old Marissa Kennedy died, Maine State Police Detective Jason Andrews tried to figure out why Sharon Carrillo and her husband Julio Carrillo had abused her so severely.
Over the course of the interview, Carrillo, who is on trial for the murder of her daughter in February 2018, tried to provide insight. Jurors watched a video of the interview on Thursday, the fifth day of the trial. Julio Carrillo, who was convicted of murder earlier this year, was sentenced to 55 years in prison for Kennedy’s beating death.
