A New Hampshire judge grilled suspected child killer Adam Montgomery’s defense attorney in court Thursday over a motion to preclude evidence in a separate firearms case.

Montgomery is accused of a slew of crimes, including the beating death of his own 5-year-old daughter Harmony in December 2019.

Thursday’s hearing was on felony firearms charges. The New Hampshire man had been convicted of shooting a drug dealer in 2014 and is now accused of stealing guns and as a result being a felon in possession of firearms.

In the firearms case, court documents revealed earlier this week that his estranged wife, Kayla Montgomery, told police that he beat his daughter to death on Dec. 7, 2019, and asked her to stick with his “cover story” and hide the crime.

Adam Montgomery’s attorneys have moved to preclude his wife’s statements on the grounds that prosecutors waited too long to reveal them in violation of discovery rules.

His public defender Caroline Smith repeatedly referred to the new statements as a “paradigm shift,” in a pool stream of the hearing from WMUR.

Judge Amy Messer granted the defense more time and postponed the trial from the previous Nov. 7 start date.

Harmony’s disappearance went unnoticed for two years, when her noncustodial mother finally reported her missing after repeated, unsuccessful attempts to contact her ex and her child.
