Manchester man accused of threatening to shoot himself and ex-girlfriend
Rocco Melodino, 24, of 88 Sullivan St., was ordered held until a preventive detention hearing Thursday, when he will be represented by an attorney.
Erin Joyce told police Melodino had pointed a loaded gun at his head and threatened to kill himself if she broke up with him. She also told police that he pointed the gun at her and said: “You’ll never leave me and you’ll never get rid of me.”
Melodino pleaded innocent in Circuit Court to misdemeanors of simple assault and false imprisonment, but could enter no plea to the felony threatening charge in Circuit Court. Prosecutors filed a preventive detention motion and the hearing was set for Thursday morning.
A tearful Cheryl Donlon Wednesday told Circuit Court-Manchester District Division Judge Gregory Michael that she didn’t know why she had suffered a relapse, but that her father died two weeks ago.
“I was an outstanding citizen,” said Donlon, 53, of 122 Palm St., Nashua. Donlon was in Circuit Court for arraignment on a misdemeanor charge of theft by unauthorized taking.
Trial was set for Jan. 8, 2014, and Judge Gregory Michael set bail at $1,000 personal recognizance. But he was taken aback when police prosecutor Carrissa Pelletier said Donlon has five previous theft-related convictions.
Police prosecutors filed a motion to revoke Taran Brooks’ bail after her arrest on a felony theft charge that alleges she took two water filters, valued at a total of $99.96, from Home Depot, 129 March Ave., Tuesday.
