Windham man could face more drug charges
BRENTWOOD — Evidence now being evaluated at the state lab may ultimately decide whether a Windham man will face more drug charges, according to court records.
Joseph Ida, 24, was arrested on drug charges after police began investigating the death of a 20-year-old woman at his home in December.
Judge Margerite Wageling recently delayed court proceedings against Ida in Rockingham County Superior Court so prosecutors could review their evidence and decide “if more charges are forthcoming,” according to a court order.
Lawyers are expected to briefly meet with Wageling again on Sept. 13 in Rockingham County Superior Court to update her on the case.
Ida has not been charged in the death of Ellie Morin, a University of New Hampshire student found dead in his home on Dec. 21. Prosecutors have not yet said what they believe caused Morin's death.
Affidavits and search warrants related to the investigation have been sealed by a circuit court judge at the request of prosecutors.
A grand jury indicted Ida in May on two counts of possession of a controlled drug for allegedly having blue tablets containing diazepam, as well as traces of heroin found on a spoon.
Ida was initially facing a charge of manufacturing a controlled drug for allegedly making the drug dimethyltryptamine, but no indictment has been brought forward to date, according to court records.
Police said they found a petroleum solvent called VM&P naptha, drain cleaner and “a substantial amount of hardware used in the manufacturing of dimethyltryptamine” at Ida's home.
Ida, who remains free on bail, has a Nov. 6, 2006, conviction in Salem for possession of a controlled drug, according to indictments.
The latest charges are punishable by up to 7½ to 15 years in state prison. No trial date has been set in the case.
