Hampton man charged in death of roommate
A Hampton man accused of killing his roommate has been charged with second-degree murder.
Assistant Attorney General Peter Hinckley said 70-year-old Peter Bartoloni is accused of using a sledgehammer to kill 56-year-old Robert Roderick on Thursday. He said the men had been roommates for a brief time before the killing.
An autopsy determined that Roderick died of multiple blunt impact injuries to his head.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether Bartoloni has a lawyer. He is scheduled to be arraigned today in Seabrook’s district court.
