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.
