Raymond man charged in baby abuse case indicted on witness tampering charges

The indictments were made public late Monday in Rockingham County Superior Court.
Moore already faces 14 counts of second-degree assault and six counts of endangering the welfare of a child in connection with the abuse case.
The new witness tampering charges come just weeks after a judge decided that a jury will be allowed to hear statements that Cavan Moore made to Raymond police just prior to being arrested Dec. 28, 2012.
"The facts strongly suggest that Mr. Moore was not deprived of his freedom by Detective Labell in any significant way," McHugh said in a seven-page decision.
Moore agreed to give a written statement to Labell at the hospital. Before he started to write, Moore allegedly said, "I may have stepped on my son's ankle when I was playing a video game," according to court testimony.
Moore had then told Labell, "I may have sat on my son's ankle" before completing his written statement, a court order said. Labell confronted Moore about the two different statements. Moore denied saying the earlier statement.
