NH high court overturns Littleton man’s conviction in stabbing of teenager
“We’re proceeding with the case,” said Saffo, who said jury selection is set for April 8. She declined to discuss any other aspects of the case, including the Supreme Court’s reversal.
Oddis was accused of using a 15-inch knife with a nine-inch blade to stab the teen in his arm and chest.
Oddis and Cryans had been quarreling for two days and exchanging threats. The day before the stabbing, Cryans’ girlfriend told Oddis she could have him killed. After that threat, Cryans telephoned Oddis multiple times and threatened him. The next day, Oddis called Cryans and told him he was going to kill him, his girlfriend and his child. Subsequently, Cryans called Oddis three times, threatening him, and saying he was going to his home to “beat his ass.”
Jeff Lyons, spokesman for the New Hampshire State Prison, said Oddis remains in the Northern New Hampshire Correctional Facility in Berlin, serving a two- to four-year sentence for an unrelated, second-degree assault that happened on July 16, 2011, in Grafton County. In that case, Oddis was accused of causing bodily injury to a 12-year-old girl in a sexual assault.
Assistant Grafton County Attorney Jack Bell prosecuted Oddis, who was defended by attorney James Brooks of the state Public Defender’s Office in Orford.
