Man Charged With Using Hatchet To Kill 91-Year-Old

LYNDEBOROUGH, N.H. (AP) — Authorities say a 44-year-old man has been charged in the death of a 91-year-old Lyndeborough man, who’d been struck in the head with a hatchet.

Lyndeborough police responded to an emergency call at a local home around 4 p.m. Tuesday and found Noel St. Laurent dead. They arrested Glenn Rodgers, who’d been living at the house since March.

Rodgers is to be arraigned in Milford District Court at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

WBZ-TV’s Lauren Leamanczyk reports.

The medical examiner’s office will perform an autopsy to determine the exact cause of St. Laurent’s death.

The case remains under investigation.
