The case against a Mansfield woman accused of killing her Boston police officer boyfriend, John O’Keefe, is set to continue with a hearing on several new motions. Prosecutors allege that the woman, identified as Read, struck O’Keefe with her car and left him to die in the snow while dropping him off at a fellow Boston police officer’s home in Canton on January 29, 2022. However, Read’s defense team claims she is being framed and asserts that O’Keefe was actually beaten to death.
During the upcoming court hearing, Read’s attorneys will request the return of $80,000 in bail money and ask for her release on personal recognizance. Additionally, the defense team is seeking access to data on Canton’s snow plows and records related to a Google Nest camera allegedly owned by Brian Albert, the homeowner where O’Keefe was dropped off. Albert stated that he had not yet installed the camera at the time of O’Keefe’s death.
On the other hand, prosecutors are seeking copies of interviews Read gave to NBC’s “Dateline” and ABC’s “Nightline.” They have also filed a motion to obtain security footage from outside Read’s parents’ home in Dighton on the day O’Keefe died. Investigators previously noted that they spoke with Read in her parents’ home and observed her SUV parked outside with a shattered tail light.
