Dow allegedly found questions from state about toddler's well-being as unwelcome

Dow, who is on trial for allegedly battering and burning Nicholson, got to see his former girlfriend for the first time since their Nov. 28, 2012 arrest in Orlando, Fla., when she stepped into the courtroom.
Questions about her expected testimony against Dow quickly set off an argument by defense lawyers.
“The government cannot tell this court where that recording was for a period of months,” Gleason said. “The issue is: is that a fair and accurate representation of what happened?”
Linscott’s brother had filed a complaint with DCYF, saying he was concerned his sister was being abused, and feared for the safety of his nephew, according to court testimony.
She nearly broke down and dabbed at tears when asked by prosecutors about how Nicholson looked the next time she saw him a month later — in a hospital bed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital in Lebanon.
Linscott’s mother, Debra Mullen, testified Nicholson would become visibly agitated whenever the two of them drove along Route 125 at the intersection where Sanborn Candies is located. Dow lived in a residence on Main Street right behind the business.
Mullen recalled to jurors how she went to Dow’s home once because she was worried about her daughter’s well-being. Dow came to the front door and told her that she was unwelcome, Mullen said.
A female police officer spoke to Mullen sternly telling her that she was trespassing on the property, and shouldn’t be getting DCYF involved in the situation, Mullen testified.
