CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A Vermont man charged with stabbing to death a private school trustee in a New Hampshire hotel lobby has been indicted on one count of second-degree murder. Rodney Hill of West Danville told police he thought she was the devil.

Hill 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 Jan. 28 in the lobby of the Hampton Inn in Littleton.

The 70-year-old Houghton had traveled to New Hampshire from her California home for board of trustees meeting at the school she graduated from in 1960.

The Caledonian Record reports the indictment charges Hill with recklessly causing Houghton's death by showing extreme indifference to human life.
