Dow, 28, of Plaistow listened to the testimony unfazed as his trial on first- and second-degree assault charges entered its fifth day in Rockingham County Superior Court. Dow is accused of battering and bruising James, the toddler son of his girlfriend, Jessica Linscott, between September and November 2012.
Gladstone said James had bruises all over his body. She concluded that the boy could not see because of an eye injury and swelling.
The eye injury included swelling and a scratch to one cornea, according to Gladstone. Dow was present in the hospital at the time of the examination along with the toddler’s mother.
She testified as the state’s star witness and has been accused by Dow’s defense team as being the one who abused her son.
Shortly after James arrived at Exeter Hospital, he was transferred to Dartmouth-Hitchcock because of the severity of his injuries. Dow and Linscott fled the state after being interviewed by police.
Jodie Russo-Dill, a registered nurse at Exeter Hospital, testified that she was working as a triage nurse when James was brought in on Nov. 15, 2012.
Testimony is expected to resume on Wednesday.
