Hearing for man charged in Littleton hotel killing delayed

LITTLETON - The probable cause hearing for a West Danville, Vt., man charged in the killing last week of a California woman with ties to New Hampshire's North Country has been postponed and has not been rescheduled.

The session for Rodney A. Hill, 37, was originally set for Tuesday morning in Littleton District Court. But a spokeswoman at the clerk's office there said Monday defense and prosecution attorneys had agreed to the postponement.

The New Hampshire Attorney General's office has charged Hill with second-degree murder in the killing of Catherine "Kitty" Houghton, 70, of Nevato, Calif. Houghton was a 1960 graduate of the White Mountain School in Bethlehem. She was the commencement speaker there in 2011, and at the time of her death was a member of the private school's board.

Senior Assistant New Hampshire Attorney General Susan Morrell said last week Hill stabbed and slashed Houghton to death on the night of Jan. 28 in the lobby of the Hampton Inn off Route 302 in Littleton following a random encounter there between the two.

She offered no motive in the case.

Public defender Marcie Hornick, who represented Hill at his initial court hearing, could not be reached Monday for comment.
