Guilty plea for 2012 murder of Raymond man
Damien Tisbert, 22, struck a fully-negotiated plea agreement about a month before his murder trial was set to begin in Rockingham County Superior Court.
Public defenders submitted to a judge on Friday a notice of intent to plead guilty signed by Tisbert.
He will enter a guilty plea on Wednesday afternoon in Rockingham County Superior Court. Terms of the plea deal were not revealed.
Tisbert, who is being held without bail, allegedly beat Dickinson then stabbed him to death with a knife inside his home at 14 Floral Ave during the early morning hours of March 25, 2012. The two men had met earlier in the night at the local VFW post in Raymond.
Dickinson was last seen alive at the VFW post, where he exchanged words with his estranged wife, Malissa, who was dating Tisbert’s father at the time, according to state police.
Tisbert’s father, David, told investigators that the encounter between Scott and Malissa Dickinson “was more of a confrontation than an interaction,” State police Sgt. John Encarnacao said in a sworn affidavit.
Scott Dickinson invited Damien Tisbert back to his home later in the night to drink beer, a police affidavit says.
Tisbert had confessed to at least one of his friends that he carried out the murder, court documents say.
A Manchester police officer arrested Tisbert after spotting him walking on Concord Street March 26.
Tisbert waived his Miranda rights during a police interview and suggested that an alter ego named “Red” encouraged him to murder.
“Tisbert said that Red told him everything, that we played God, and that the murder was something Red always wanted to do,” Encarnacao said in the affidavit.
Dickinson’s body was found by his mother on March 25 when she came to his home, police said.
Tisbert faces up to life in prison on the two murder charges, which were returned by a Rockingham County grand jury in September.
