Fiance, who was stabbed, needs her, says Manchester woman requesting bail
MANCHESTER — Takarra Ferreira, 25, of 478 Lake Ave., pleaded Tuesday with a judge in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division for personal recognizance bail on warrants from Concord and Nashua.
“I have no reason to run. I have two children,” Ferreira said.
“My fiance is lying in the Elliot Hospital. He was stabbed yesterday,” said Ferreira, who said she wouldn’t want him to be alone if he died.
Judge Gregory Michael asked police prosecutor Carrissa Pelletier about Ferreira’s statement, and Pelletier said the stabbing is under investigation.
Ronald Lievens, 22, was found with a stab wound in the chest on the driveway at the Lake Avenue address Monday morning. A hospital spokesman on Tuesday afternoon said Lievens was doing well and was being discharged.
Bail on the Concord warrant, which involves February 2013 charges of operating after suspension and allowing an improper person to drive, is $4,000 personal recognizance, with a March 31 court date. The “improper person” is Lievens, who was cited for operating without a valid license. Ferreira and Lievens had the same Derry address at the time of those arrests.
Ferreira told the judge she hasn’t seen her children in a year because her ex-husband and his mother won’t let her see them.
Michael changed the requested $2,500 cash/surety bail to personal recognizance on a 2013 Nashua charge of violation of a domestic violence protective order and two charges of domestic assault. Bail conditions bar contact with Ferreira’s ex-husband and his mother. A trial was set for May 6, when Michael said he will be sitting in Nashua and will see Ferreira again.
Court missed due to rehab
Kelly Vietze, 44, of 159 S. Main St., told Judge Michael on Tuesday that she missed court dates for misdemeanor driving after revocation charges because she was in a Dublin rehab facility at the time.
“I’m a recovering addict,” said Vietze, who added: “I’ve been clean since I left Dublin.”
The judge praised Vietze for going through rehab and remaining clean.
He set bail at $1,000 personal recognizance on a Manchester police charge, with an April 21 trial date. Bail was set at $750 personal recognizance on a State Police charge, with an April 28 trial date.
Says she wasn’t stealing
Louise Mcilvar, 34, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor charge that alleges she left the Rite Aid at 270 Mammoth Road with hair care products without paying for them on Jan. 28.
“I was not at Rite Aid stealing,” Mcilvar told Judge Michael.
The judge set a $1,000 personal recognizance bail on that charge, but left in place a $1,000 cash/surety bail on a theft by unauthorized taking charge from October 2013 at Walmart on Keller Street. Mcilvar had failed to appear for trial on that charge Jan. 28.
A trial on both theft charges is now set for April 21.
Lists health issues
A Massachusetts man Tuesday asked for personal recognizance bail, saying he has been in the hospital four times in the past six months and needs surgery for a heart pacemaker.
Joseph Palermo, 66, of 201 Middlesex St., Lowell, was in Circuit Court for arraignment on a felony charge of theft by deception and a misdemeanor charge of tampering with public records. Palermo is accused of selling a vehicle and using a false bill of sale.
Judge Michael set bail at $2,000 personal recognizance. A probable cause hearing on the felony was set for March 26, and trial on the misdemeanor was set for April 21.
She has “a lot going on”
A Derry woman was hoping for personal recognizance bail at her arraignment Tuesday, but police prosecutors wanted $1,000 cash/surety bail for Amanda Warren, 26, of 15 Windham Depot Road, Lot 27.
“I’ve got a lot going on,” Warren told Judge Michael.
Warren was in Circuit Court for arraignment on a misdemeanor charge of violation of a domestic violence protective order. A police prosecutor said Warren, who has a suspended sentence on April 2013 convictions for assault and resisting arrest, has pending drug and driving while intoxicated charges in Derry and Salem.
The judge set bail at $500 cash/surety, with conditions barring contact with a specific person. The trial was set for April 21.
