N.H. Attorney General

New Hampshire is on track to see more homicides this year than in any year since at least 2005. According to the Attorney General’s office, there have been 24 homicides so far in 2019.

Over the last decade and a half, the most homicides New Hampshire saw in a year was 25, in 2013. Eight months into 2019, the state is already at 24 homicides.

Six of them happened in July alone -- three in Concord and three in Manchester.

Many have involved domestic violence.

New Hampshire law enforcement officials have charged a woman with murder in connection with the shooting of her mother .

Jennifer Clow is charged with knowing and reckless second-degree murder for causing the death of her mother, Sally A. Miller. Authorities discovered the body of the 72-year-old Miller while conducting a welfare check on her Friday. An autopsy later found Miller died of a single gunshot wound.

 

The New Hampshire Attorney General's Office says a State Trooper's use of deadly force in September was legally justified.

The incident began when Trooper Kevin Dobson responded to multiple calls about a drunk driver on Route 101.

Dobson found the vehicle parked off the road in Epping.

The Manchester Police and the Attorney General have arrested and charged Paul Dimick, the Manchester man wanted since last week for second-degree murder.

The police had been searching for Dimick since Friday, when they say Dimick shot and killed 32-year old Justin Lee in Manchester.

The police received a tip on Wednesday that Dimick was seen exiting a house not far from the site of the shooting. He was arrested and will be arraigned at Hillsborough County Superior Court on Thursday.
