CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A Vermont man charged with stabbing to death a private school trustee in a New Hampshire hotel lobby told police he thought she was the devil, according to recently released court documents.
The Caledonian Record reports that Rodney Hill of West Danville, Vt., told police he was going through a divorce and was angry at an email he had gotten from his boss when he punched and stabbed White Mountain School trustee Catherine Houghton at the Hampton Inn in Littleton.
The 70-year-old Houghton had travelled to New Hampshire from her Novato, Calif., home for a board of trustees meeting at the school she graduated from in 1960.
Court documents indicate Hill is still undergoing evaluations to determine if he is competent to stand trial.
