Prosecutors presented eight witnesses Thursday, the second day of the trial,  including a neighbor who said she heard a blood-curdling scream the night Marriott died in Mazzaglia's Dover apartment. 

Prosecutors say Mazzaglia raped and killed Marriott after she rejected his sexual advances. His lawyers say Mazzaglia's girlfriend, Kathryn McDonough, killed Marriott during rough sex. 

McDonough is serving 1 1/2 to 3 years in prison and is expected to testify against Mazzaglia.
