Prosecutors mum on more charges in Exeter murder
Aaron Desjardins, 36, remains held without bail at the Rockingham County Jail after he was arrested on March 12 and charged with first-degree murder in the death of his ex-wife, Amanda "Amy" Warf.
Desjardins, who lives at 67 Railroad Ave. in Epping, was arrested just days after the body of the 36-year-old Hampton mother was found by firefighters when they responded to a report of a fire inside the vacant City Concrete factory on Hampton Road.
Desjardins is accused of slitting Warf's throat, but he was not charged with setting a fire on the second floor of the concrete plant where the body was discovered.
Senior Assistant Attorney General Susan Morrell said Wednesday that the case has been bound over to Rockingham County Superior Court. She said she couldn't comment on when it may go to a grand jury for possible indictment. Cases are normally brought before grand juries within 90 days after being sent to superior court, but they are often granted extensions, according to Morrell.
Morrell did not rule out the possibility of additional arrests in the case when questioned after Desjardins was arraigned last month, but wouldn't comment on the possibility Wednesday.
"I can't comment on any aspect of the ongoing investigation at this time," Morrell said.
Desjardins has denied that he killed Warf.
In an interview with the New Hampshire Union Leader two days before his arrest, Desjardins said he was at home with his wife, Sarah, his sister, and his young son, whose mother was Warf, when the fire was reported and the body was found.
