Who is Karen Read?

Karen Read is a 42-year-old woman from Massachusetts.

Her parents, William and Janet Read, told Boston 25 News that she began seriously dating John O’Keefe in 2019, just before the coronavirus pandemic.

Janet Read said about the couple: “They just seemed to be in a happy place, you know.”

What is Karen Read accused of?

Read is accused of killing O’Keefe following a night at the bar, per NBC Boston.

She has been charged with second-degree murder.

Per the outlet, police claim Read ran O’Keefe over with her SUV while dropping him off at a house party in Canton, Massachusetts.

According to ABC News, prosecutors allege she then left him to die during a snowstorm, and that the couple had gotten into an argument earlier that day.

Read and her defense team have denied the allegations against her, maintaining that she was not involved in O’Keefe’s death.

In an interview with ABC News’ Matt Gutman, Read said: “I did not kill John O’Keefe. I have never harmed a hair on John O’Keefe’s head.”

The outlet reported that on the night of O’Keefe’s death, the couple ran into Boston police officer Brian Albert at the Waterfall Bar.

Read claims O’Keefe told her they were invited back to Albert’s house.

Her defense attorneys claim that O’Keefe was beaten inside the home before his body was dumped outside, per CBS News.

She and her attorneys allege that there has been a coverup involving state and local police.

The prosecution has denied those claims, telling ABC News: “There was no conspiracy or coverup. Such claims have been systematically refuted by evidence submitted to Norfolk Superior Court.”

According to CBS News, Read spoke on the courthouse steps, saying: “We know who did it. We know. And we know who spearheaded this coverup. You all know.

“I tried to save his life. I tried to save his life at 6 in the morning, I was covered in his blood. I was the only one trying to save his life.”

Read has a court hearing scheduled for Friday, September 15, per NBC Boston.
