Manchester Crimewatch: Diaper-throwing husband charged with assault
Trial is set June 19 in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division for Peter Ash, 35, of 15 English Village Road, who pleaded innocent Friday to a simple assault charge that alleges he threw a baby diaper at his wife’s head, causing the diaper to break open.
Ash, a 15-year state employee, is a corrections officer at the New Hampshire State Prison for men. He is free on $1,000 personal recognizance bail, with conditions barring him from contact with his wife and barring him from the English Village Road address.
Parole violation warrant
Frederick McConnell, 49, of 491 Somerville St., pleaded innocent Friday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to a misdemeanor charge of simple assault that alleges he kicked his ex-girlfriend in the ribs during an argument over money Thursday.
Trial was set for June 18 and bail was set at $1,500 cash/surety, but a police prosecutor said there is a warrant for McConnell for a parole violation, on a three-to-nine-year drug conviction. The prosecutor said McDonnell also has a second-degree assault conviction on his record.
Probation hold rules
Donnell Mills, 31, of 390 Belmont St., pleaded innocent Friday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to seven misdemeanor charges: four simple assault, one criminal threatening, one resisting arrest and one possession of a controlled drug.
Mills is accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend, punching , scratching and slapping her, and threatening her not to call police. He resisted arrest and police said they found he had marijuana in his possession.
Bail was set at $2,000 cash/surety, with conditions barring contact with his ex-girlfriend, and trial was set for June 18. But bail will not be effective unless a 72-hour probation hold is lifted.
