Police charge man, 68, with sexual abuse of girl, 9


RAYMOND — A Raymond man was arrested Wednesday on charges he sexually assaulted a 9-year-old girl.

Richard Smeltzer, 68, was charged after an investigation into complaints the girl made to relatives that Smeltzer "engaged in sexual conduct" with her, police said in a release.

He was charged with six counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault and is scheduled to appear Sept. 9 in Candia Circuit Court.

Smeltzer's son, Christopher, is serving a prison sentence after killing his wife, Mara, at their Auburn home on Nov. 7, 2010, after finding she had killed their son, Mason, and tried to kill their daughter, Mercey.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
