Judge Marguerite Wageling rejected a request by Roland Dow, 28, to dismiss indictments against him, clearing the way for his trial in Rockingham County Superior Court on charges of first- and second-degree assault, according to a decision released Thursday.
Dow also faces charges that he made videos of the boy while coaching him on what to say in response to questions about his injuries. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges and remains at Rockingham County jail.
Linscott admitted to spanking her son and to "pushing him during an argument she was having with (Dow) and striking (her son) in the arm with a Windex bottle," according to court records.
Conway rejected Gleason's claims that Dow was subjected to "selective" prosecution and "bartered away" a potential assault case against Linscott. She is expected to be called as a state witness during Dow's trial.
