Vermont man indicted on murder charge in Littleton hotel stabbing
A Vermont man charged with stabbing to death a private school trustee in a Littleton hotel lobby and who told the police he thought she was the devil has been indicted on one count of second-degree murder.
Rodney Hill of West Danville, Vt., told the police he was going through a divorce and was angry at an email he had gotten from his boss when he punched and stabbed White Mountain School trustee Catherine Houghton on Jan. 28 in the lobby of the Hampton Inn in Littleton.
The 70-year-old Houghton had traveled to New Hampshire from her California home for a board of trustees meeting at the school she graduated from in 1960.
The Caledonian Record reported that the indictment charges Hill with recklessly causing Houghton’s death by showing extreme indifference to human life.
