Wife says Manchester police officer husband body slammed her
Assistant County Attorney Patricia Conway said during opening statements that an argument at the couple’s Raymond home quickly grew physical when Linstad put his wife in a bear hug from behind and slammed her to the ground.
The alleged attack happened in front of the couple’s 5-year-old son. Linstad then warned his wife not to call the police, according to prosecutors.
Melinda Linstad testified that days before the assault, her husband sent her a text message at work to say that he wasn’t happy. That prompted her to go home, where her husband told her that he didn’t love her anymore, according to her testimony.
“He called them turds — girls from the club who would send naked pictures of themselves and he would send pictures back,” she told jurors.
Melinda Linstad testified that despite the problems, she wanted to save her marriage and sought counseling.
Melinda Linstad testified she retired seven months earlier as a cheerleader for the New England Patriots, and eventually took a part-time accounts payable job to support the family.
Wilson questioned Melinda Linstad’s claims about whether she was truly afraid of her husband. He told jurors that right after the alleged assault she called her mother, but then asked her husband to join her downstairs to review some bills together on the computer.
“(She said) ‘You ruined my life and I am going to ruin yours.’ And here we are,” Wilson told the jury.
