Death of child in Lyman follows action by courts
LITTLETON — Two of the three adults who were living at a Lyman home last month where four-month-old twins were removed by ambulance — and one was later pronounced dead — have histories of violence, according to records on file at Littleton Family Court.
In the nearly two weeks since, the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office has released little information on the case, including the children’s identities, the baby boy’s cause of death or any other details from his autopsy, or his sister’s current medical condition.
Two of the residents at 310 Quebec Road, Trevor McGuire, 24, and Linda Tellier, 54, have both had relief from abuse orders enforced against them in recent years, and Tellier was convicted in 1998 of assaulting a state trooper.
Judge John P. Cyr on April 15, 2010, found evidence to issue a relief from abuse order in response to a petition from a woman McGuire knew that he had allegedly raped a month earlier.
The woman told the court that she had recently had a baby and was, on doctor’s orders, to refrain from sexual intercourse while she recovered.
Cyr issued the order that was in effect from April 15, 2010, to April 14, 2011. It included that McGuire have no contact with the woman and that he remain at least 100 yards away from her.
McGuire, according to court records, complied with Cyr’s order that he surrender a .22-caliber rifle and a .308 caliber rifle, and that he possess no other firearms.
In June 1997, the court granted a domestic violence petition against Tellier and issued a protective order against her.
In July 1998, Tellier was convicted of simple assault against then-New Hampshire State Trooper Russell Hubbard. She was convicted in February 1995 of violating the controlled drug act and fined $250, and convicted again in June 2008 of violating the controlled drug act and fined $420.
Telephone listings for McGuire and Linda Tellier have, since at least June 19, and including Monday, resulted in recordings saying the numbers are not in service or have been disconnected.
Emergency medical personnel responding to a 911 call arrived at the Quebec Road address early on the morning of June 18 and found the babies in medical distress. They were taken to a nearby hospital where the boy died and his sister was listed that day in serious condition.Senior Assistant Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin last week identified a third adult living in the Lyman home as Patina Welch.
Welch and McGuire are the parents of the children.
A spokeswoman at his Concord office said Monday morning Strelzin would not be available for comment this week.
Senior Assistant Attorney General Susan Morrell did not return a message left for her.
