A Worcester ex-con was arraigned Wednesday on home invasion and armed robbery charges for breaking into an elderly man’s house four times in two weeks.
New Hampshire rarely expands its death penalty statute, but the brutal machete and knife attack that killed a mother in her bed and severely wounded her daughter could move lawmakers to add home invasion killings to the short list of crimes punishable by death.
Jurors began deliberations in the trial of Christopher Gribble, who has admitted to killing a mother and maiming her daughter during a 2009 home invasion in Mont Vernon.
A New Hampshire man is admitting he hacked to death a mother and seriously wounded her young daughter, but he says he was insane when he did it.
Police are investigating what they call a rare cluster of house breaks in Harwich Port.
