Northwood man charged with threatening to kill judge
John Dembkoski, 63, also told a corrections officer while being booked at the Rockingham County jail that he was going to kill his wife and was compiling a "hit list," Rockingham Sheriff Deputy Raymond Berube said in a sworn affidavit.
Court records filed in 10th Circuit Court did not name a specific judge, but the charge is a Class A felony punishable by up to 7½ to 15 years in state prison.
He was initially held on $25,000 cash on a charge of violating a protective order. Now he must post an additional $50,000 cash or surety on the new charges stemming from his alleged threats, court records say.
The sheriff's department began investigating the alleged threatening statements shortly after Dembkoski was arrested by Exeter police on Jan.17 on charges of violating a protective order, according to court records.
About 10 minutes into the booking process, Dembkoski told Corrections Officer Jonathan Banville "that he was going to kill his wife when he leaves the jail," Berube said in the affidavit.
He then told Banville that he "was compiling a hit list," according to the affidavit.
