BURKE 

Nashua man arrested in connection with Chestnut Street death in July


NASHUA — A local man was arrested Tuesday, charged in connection with the death of a woman who was found dead inside a Chestnut Street apartment in July.

Police said Daniel Burke, 51, of 23 Temple St., pushed Hill into a cabinet, causing her to strike her head and suffer injuries that led to her death.

.
Burke was charged with manslaughter, two counts of falsifying evidence and abuse of a corpse.

Hill was found July 20, wrapped in plastic and decomposing. Police said that she was found about two weeks after she died — when police received complaints of a suspicious odor in her apartment building.
..
In addition to wrapping Hill in plastic, Burke allegedly "wiped up blood or decomposition fluids with cleaning materials and discarded them," police said in a news release.

He is scheduled to appear at 8:30 a.m. today in Nashua Circuit Court.
