Judge: Prosecutors violated murder suspect’s right to fair trial

There is a new twist in the murder case of a Medford Marine.



Dante Taylor is accused of raping and stabbing 21-year-old Sarah Goode.



A judge says prosecutors denied the suspect the right to a fair trial by withholding certain evidence.



According to Newsday, the judge ruled yesterday that prosecutors did not turn over evidence to the defense team in a timely manner.



Part of the evidence reportedly included a tip that the victim broke up with another man days before her murder.



Closing arguments in the case are set for Monday.
