OSSIPEE, N.H. -- A woman was arraigned on second-degree murder charges Monday after an Ossipee mother was stabbed to death over the weekend.
Maureen McDonald, 36, was charged with killing Jennifer Correa, 31. Police said that McDonald stabbed Correa twice -- once in the heart -- at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
Investigators said that McDonald told them that she gave Correa money for beer, but McDonald became upset because she didn't believe she received her fair share.
Police said that McDonald originally told them that Correa attacked her with the knife first, but she later changed her story.
"She now stated that she had the knife and Correa never had the knife that night," Sgt. Carrie Nolet said. "She said she accidentally cut her own hand while reaching for her knife. After she cut her hand, she stabbed Correa twice."
Correa's husband did not attend Monday's hearing, saying that he and his three children are trying to deal with Correa's death.
McDonald was ordered held without bail. She is scheduled to return to court on March 30 for a probable cause hearing.
Meet Edward Cuebas. The 31-year-old Georgia man was arrested Friday afternoon for urinating in the gas tank of a marked Savannah police car during the city's rollicking St. Patrick's Day celebration. That's right, Cuebas, an Army captain, tried to top off the tank of a marked cruiser from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police, according to the below incident report. When officers in a second vehicle spotted Cuebas pressed against the patrol car, they called him over to their car. He responded by running away, while "simultaneously placing his penis back in his pants." Cuebas was quickly apprehended and eventually charged with public indecency, criminal trespass, and interference with government property, all misdemeanors. Amazingly, he was not hit with any booze-related counts, though you have to figure Cuebas was a bit toasted when he approached that gaping gas cap.
A Roxbury man who allegedly brandished a nail gun during a fight last week died yesterday of head injuries allegedly inflicted by a neighbor who wielded a baseball bat in the confrontation, police said.
Frederick Montgomery, 31, died at Brigham and Women's Hospital of head trauma suffered when he was struck ''more than once" in the head with an aluminum baseball bat on March 12, said a spokesman for the Boston police, Officer Michael McCarthy, yesterday.
Police found Montgomery lying face down in the entryway of the Roxbury three-decker where he lived.
A resident of a different apartment in the Wigglesworth Street building, 39-year-old John Conley, told police he struck Montgomery with the bat during a fight, police said.
Conley told police that Montgomery came at him with a nail gun after an argument.
A nail gun was found on the floor at the scene, Suffolk County prosecutors said.
Conley was arraigned last week on a charge of assault with intent to murder, and was ordered held on $500,000 cash bail.
An autopsy was being conducted yesterday, and the results will help determine whether Montgomery's death will be ruled a homicide, McCarthy said.
If the death is ruled a homicide, it would be the city's ninth of 2006.
There were 12 homicides in Boston by this date last year, McCarthy said.
A former resident of the apartment building, who asked that his name not be used, said yesterday that Montgomery had lived in the first-floor apartment for about a year and that he had seemed to be personable.
''He was friendly. I would say hello to him every so often," the former neighbor said. ''It's just unbelievable that this happened and now he's dead."
The former neighbor, who moved out of the building in the fall, said that he did not know Conley.
Conley is scheduled to be back in court early next month, McCarthy said.
