North Country Man Indicted In Hunting Death
A North Country man has been indicted for negligent homicide in a hunting accident last November.
A Grafton County Grand Jury concluded that Wade S. Holmes, 49, “failed to identify with certainty” his target and fired the shot that killed Kenneth Brunelle of Marlboro, Massachusetts.
Brunelle was hunting with his father and brother off Mt. Eustis Road in Lisbon when the accident occurred about 8 a.m. He was shot in the neck and died at the scene, according to New Hampshire Fish and Game.
Such a felony could result in three and one-half to seven years in prison.
The indictment says Holmes was “formerly of Lisbon” but he is also listed as having lived in Littleton. A telephone number for him in Littleton has been disconnected.
