BRATTLEBORO – A Derby man is accused of severely beating a woman at a Brattleboro hotel, resulting in injuries including brain hemorrhage, punctured lung, fractures to her face, bones around her eyes, to her sternum and to his rib cage, as well as bruises all over his body.

According to the Windham County State’s Attorney’s Office, 21-year-old Preston Lawson will be charged with a recidivism.

He is being held on $15,000 bail for violating his parole.

“Upon further review of the information, it would be appropriate to have a restraint without bond here,” Windham Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Mann said. “There is a serious risk of leakage presented in this case and based on the allegations, at least to date, without a hearing of evidence, there is no reasonable expectation of an ability to protect the community from this kind of behavior.”

A bail hearing has been set for Friday.

Lawson was charged with one count of first-degree aggravated assault with a prior aggravated assault conviction and one count of first-degree aggravated assault.

Lawson’s prior convictions include first-degree aggravated domestic assault, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and burglary in an occupied dwelling, all from 2019.

During his arraignment, Lawson asked the judge when he could see the woman he is accused of assaulting.

“I have never done wrong [the woman]Lawson told the judge. “She’s all I have on this planet…”

Lawson also called the woman his “goddess.”

He also told the court he expected the woman to show up in court to post the $15,000 bail imposed Wednesday night for violating her parole.

“If I understand correctly,” Mann said, “[she is] I’m not coming… [she is] not physically able to come.

The woman was transported to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital and then transferred to Albany Medical Center (NY), where she is being treated in the intensive care unit.

According to an affidavit filed by Brattleboro Police Detective Colby Kerylow, police responded to a Brattleboro hotel after a 911 call was made just after 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Upon arriving at the hotel, officers found Lawson and a seriously injured woman in one of the rooms.

“Lawson said they were ‘beaten very badly by three people,'” Kerylow wrote, adding that it may have been because he identified a drug dealer in Springfield to his county probation officer. of Windsor.

He also said they wanted $2,000 to leave him and the woman alone.

“Lawson said he was knocked down and kicked three or four times in the stomach and ‘hammer-fisted’ through the eyes,” Kerylow wrote. “It should be noted that while I was speaking with Lawson at the police department, I did not observe any injuries to Lawson’s face. I also observed that Lawson’s right hand was swollen, but I also observed this which appeared to be marks, indicating intravenous drug use, on the tops of Lawson’s hands.

Lawson also told police he called 911, but a check of records revealed it was in fact the woman who made the call.

During a search of the hotel room, the police found several white towels, white sheets and white pillows with blood on them.

“At the head of the bed, there was a stain of blood that went through the mattress. Throughout the room there were several areas that had blood splatter including the walls, nightstands, heat sink, bathroom areas, and closet and bathroom doors” , wrote Kerylow.

About two hours before the 911 call, the local dispatcher received a request from a man asking them to perform a wellness check on a couple at the hotel.

The man told police that Lawson and the woman were trying to blackmail him for money and that they said if he didn’t deposit money in their bank account they were going to kill themselves by doing a drug overdose.

The man asked for the welfare check because he “feared the two would go ahead with their plan,” Kerylow wrote.

On a recording of a 5 p.m. phone call between Lawson and the man who applied for the welfare check, Lawson can be heard saying, “You’re just a little girl and believe “I will strangle you with my bare hands until you can’t breathe…” according to the affidavit.

The lobby features a stunning three-story cathedral ceiling, with towering walls of glass facing the magnificent Waterfall Garden. The third floor is also an oasis of surprises, with a year-round indoor-outdoor pool surrounded by cabana rooms.

When I saw the leafy, sparkling courtyard and the resort-style premises, I felt like Dorothy and Toto in The Wizard of Oz were whisked away from Kansas to a new land. I thought: I feel like we’re not in downtown Toronto anymore.

MAYS LANDING — That’s 42 years in prison for a New York man who was convicted of violently raping a housekeeper at Bally’s Hotel and Casino in 2018.

After a two-week trial, a jury found Jamel Carlton, 36, of Saugerties guilty of aggravated sexual assault, among other counts.

The case helped motivate a state right for “Panic Buttons” the following year, which was billed as the nation’s first.

It requires hotels with more than 100 rooms to provide housekeepers with panic devices.

The victim and her family were in the courtroom during Wednesday’s sentencing as she told the court and Carlton how much pain her actions had caused.

He must serve 85% of his sentence before being eligible for parole, under the No Early Release Act.

Carlton will also have to register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law and will be on parole for life.

“The strength of the victim in this case was extraordinary,” Atlantic County Chief Assistant District Attorney John Flammer said in a written statement.

“Normally, the defendant faces 10 to 20 years in state prison for aggravated sexual assault,” Flammer continued.

“However, given the defendant’s criminal history and the particularly egregious nature of this sexual assault, we have asked the Court to impose an extended sentence to ensure proper justice for our victim and to protect the public from harm. future harm to that individual.”

These are the best hiking spots in New Jersey

A trip to New Jersey doesn’t have to be just the beach. Our state has incredible trails, waterfalls and lakes to enjoy.

From the Pine Barrens to the Appalachian Trail to New Jersey’s hidden gems, you have plenty of options for a great hike. Hiking is a great way to spend time outdoors and enjoy nature, plus it’s a great workout.

Before you hit the trails and explore some of the suggestions from our listeners, I have a few tips on hiking etiquette from the American Hiking Society.

If you descend and encounter an uphill hiker, pull to the side and give the uphill hiker some space. An uphill hiker has the right of way unless they stop to catch their breath.

Always stay on the trail, you may see side paths, unless marked as an official trail, avoid them. Going off the trail, you risk damaging the ecosystems around the trail, the plants and wildlife that live there.

You also don’t want to disturb any wildlife you encounter, just keep your distance from the wildlife and continue hiking.

Cyclists must yield to hikers and horses. Hikers should also give in to horses, but I’m not sure how many horses you’ll encounter on New Jersey trails.

If you plan to take your dog on your hike, they must be on a leash and be sure to clean up all pet waste.

Finally, pay attention to the weather, if the trail is too muddy, it’s probably best to save your hike for another day.

I asked our listeners for their suggestions on the best hiking spots in New Jersey, check out their suggestions:

The island has always attracted well-known and well-connected people, its appeal of former visitors including King Edward VII, Siegfried Sassoon, HG Wells and lover Rebecca West (whose 1918 novel The Return of the Soldier centered on a case on Monkey Island), and singers Clara Butt and Dame Nellie Melba, while racing driver Stirling Moss and, going back further, 17th-century composer Sir Edward Elgar stayed in the private residences, Elgar writing some of his most famous concertos there.

The backstory

The original temple and pavilion buildings were built in the late 1730s, apparently on the rubble of the Great Fire of London, as a pavilion and fishing ground, respectively, for Charles Spencer, third Duke of Marlborough, resident of the Palace of Blenheim and distant relative. to Sir Winston Churchill and Princess Diana (we can also thank him for the Langley Hotel in Buckinghamshire, originally built as his hunting lodge).

It is said that the rather misleading name of Monkey Island is due either to the monks of the nearby monastery who liked to picnic on the land in the 10th century, or because in the early 18th century it became fashionable to paint monkeys like humans and lots. were painted there – or both. Either way, you won’t find any monkeys here.

Monkey Island Estate, Bray

The 1960s later saw the island, and Bray itself, become the center of the party, with parties such as the Oxfam Ball in 1964 attracting 1,400 guests and being widely reported in Tatler – although apparently like some sort of perma-Burning Man festival, being on the Monkey Island estate was much more about the events than you doesn’t talk afterwards.

Fast forward to 2015 when the current owners of YTL took it over – the imposing statue in front of the hotel is the late Yeoh Tiong Lay, founder of the family business, who visited the then slightly dilapidated estate in 2014 and, excited about its potential, broke it. YTL Hotels (also owners of Gainsborough Bath Spa and Thermae Spa) then spent four years and several million pounds refurbishing each room and adding sparkling new features.

JACKSON COUNTY, Mo. (KCTV) – A woman has been charged with impaired driving after a person was struck by a vehicle and pinned against a hotel in Lee’s Summit, which ultimately led to her death.

Camden E. Hager, 23, of Lee’s Summit, has been charged with impaired driving causing death, according to the Jackson County District Attorney’s Office.

According to court records, Lee’s Summit Police attended the Fairfield Inn in the 1300 block of NE Windsor Drive after receiving a call from someone who said a pedestrian had been hit by a vehicle in the parking lot .

The investigation revealed that the victim had been hit by a vehicle and pushed into or tackled against building. The vehicle also struck the building itself.

The victim was taken to a local hospital, but ultimately died from his injuries. On Thursday, the Lee’s Summit Police Department identified her as Sandrea N. Sipple, 21, of Kansas City, Kansas.

According to the prosecution, the investigation revealed that Sipple was sitting on the sidewalk of the parking lot when she was struck by the vehicle Hager was driving.

“Breath tests and other tests” showed Hager was driving while intoxicated, the prosecutor’s office said.

According to court documents, the officer asked Hager if she was going over the legal limit. “At the level of the breathalyzer, yes,” she said. “I’ll be honest with you.”

The officer asked her to submit to a preliminary breath test and she agreed. She then detonated a .203. According to the Missouri Department of Revenue, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or higher.

“Based on the totality of the circumstances,” the officer made his arrest for drunk driving.

“Once in custody, Hager said, ‘I told you this was going to be over the legal limit,’ then laughed,” the court documents state.

Prosecutors have asked for $100,000 bond.

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) runs a national helpline available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Simply call 1-800-662-HELP (4357). Their website says the helpline is for “individuals and family members dealing with mental and/or substance use disorders.” “This service provides referrals to local treatment facilities, support groups and community organizations,” they add.

Until last week, “Roaring Lion,” a famous photograph of scowling Winston Churchill, sat on display for decades at Ottawa’s Chateau Laurier hotel. But a hotel employee recently noticed that the frame of the portrait no longer matched that of the five other Yousuf Karsh photographs on display. Karsh’s estate overseer, Jerry Fielder, confirmed the signature was forged: This image was a fake. Ottawa police are currently investigating the robbery. The portrait, which appeared on Britain’s five-pound note in 2016, has only gained in value since the 1990s, when negatives of Karsh’s work were donated to Library and Archives Canada. No printing is allowed. Karsh is an acclaimed Armenian-Canadian portrait painter who has lived in the hotel for nearly two decades; he held his first exhibition in 1936 and his studio on the sixth floor until 1992. During Karsh’s career, his subjects included Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King, Jr., Queen Elizabeth, and Ernest Hemingway. He met Churchill in 1941 after the British Prime Minister’s speech to the Canadian Parliament. When Karsh asked to do a portrait, he remembered Churchill asking, “Why didn’t they tell me?”

A man who died trying to escape a fatal hotel fire with his partner had cuts and blood on his hands trying to force his way through a window, an inquest has heard.

Richard Dyson, 38, and his companion Simon Midgley, 32, from London, died following the fire at the five-star Cameron House hotel in December 2017.

An inquest into a fatal accident at the fire at the hotel, located on the shores of Loch Lomond near Balloch, is underway at Paisley Sheriff Court.

Firefighter Phillip Douglas, 35, told the inquest he found Mr Dyson’s body while searching the hotel corridors.

Poor visibility meant that Mr Douglas and his colleagues were sweeping the floors and walls with their hands and feet to check the situation around them.

“I kicked what I thought was a bit of debris from the hotel,” he told the inquest. “But I realized at the time that it was actually a person’s leg. It became clear that it was a victim.

“There was no visibility at the time. I tried to light my torch but I didn’t see anything.

Mr Dyson was unconscious and had blood on his hands after trying to fight his way out of hell.

Mr Douglas told the inquest he and his colleagues had already been told to evacuate the hotel over fears the building would collapse.

He told the inquest that upon his return, the conditions in the stairwell where the bodies of Messrs. Dyson and Midgley had gotten significantly worse.

“I couldn’t see my hands in front of my face at the time,” Mr Douglas said of the scene before finding Mr Dyson’s body.

The family of Mr Dyson and Mr Midgley became distraught when the inquest heard the details and showed photographs of the window and belongings left behind by the men trying to escape.

The inquest had previously heard that the couple had tried to break a window with a picture frame to escape the fire.

They had been able to break only one pane of the laminated double-glazed window.

Paul Stewart, 50, was the assistant chief non-commissioned officer on duty on December 18, 2017 – the morning of the fire at a 128-room hotel.

He arrived at the scene just before 8am and had been told by colleagues when he heard Mr Dyson and Mr Midgley were missing.

He told the inquest that the “main objective” was to locate the two men.

And he said he had ‘faith’ and ‘trust’ in the fire officer assigned to help with a roll call.

He said: “During the incident, I appointed an arrival call officer to get as much information as possible about the missing persons.

“My faith and trust in the commander doing this was pretty strong.”

Hotel operator Cameron House Resort (Loch Lomond) Ltd has already been fined £500,000 and night porter Christopher O’Malley has received a community reimbursement order for the fire.

Dumbarton Sheriff Court heard in January last year that the fire started after O’Malley dumped ashes and embers from a fuel fire into a polythene bag and then put them in a cupboard kindling and newspapers.

The hotel company has admitted that it did not take the necessary fire safety measures to ensure the safety of its customers and employees between January 14, 2016 and December 18, 2017.

The company admitted two counts of breaching the Fires (Scotland) Act 2005.

O’Malley admitted to breaching sections of the health and safety laws that relate to an employee’s duty to take reasonable precautions for the health and safety of those affected by their acts or omissions at work .

The investigation is continuing.

Firefighters attending a fatal blaze at a hotel did not realize there were missing guests as they battled the flames, an inquest has heard.

The fire at the five-star Cameron House Hotel claimed the lives of Simon Midgley, 32, and his partner, Richard Dyson, 38, of London, in December 2017.

An investigation into a fatal accident at the hotel hell on the shores of Loch Lomond, near Balloch, is underway at Paisley Sheriff Court.

The inquest had previously learned how the two men had tried to break a window to escape from the burning hotel.

Their bodies were later found on the second floor landing by firefighters.

Graham Atwell, a retired shift commander at Balloch Fire Station, was among the first firefighters to arrive at the 128-room hotel.

Before the crews arrived, they had been alerted that a couple and their son were trapped in a room on the top floor and that firefighters were preparing to rescue them.

Mr Atwell said he spoke to the hotel duty manager when he arrived.

Mr Atwell, who had around 35 years of firefighting experience before retiring, told the inquest: ‘I don’t specifically recall speaking to him to ask if everyone was out of the hotel, except for the only family we knew at the window.

“But I remember being happy everyone got out and I think (the duty manager) was happy everyone got out of the hotel.

Mr Atwell said ‘put life first’ was the first instruction always carried out by firefighters at the scene of an incident, and he told the inquest that his team would not have carried out firefighting if he had thought that there were trapped people.

Following the successful rescue of the family of three, Mr Atwell asked the duty manager if a roll call had been made.

He told the inquest he was told the formal process could not move forward because staff did not have a guest list.

Mr Atwell retrieved the guest list from reception and a call began as guests were taken to the nearby boathouse.

An update from Mr Atwell’s fire department at 7.10am said officers were still trying to determine if a roll call had been made.

At 8:16 a.m. the crew was informed that the occupants, Mr. Midgley and Mr. Dyson, were missing.

Asked by the tax prosecutor what made him happy that all the bodies had been found earlier in the morning, Mr Atwell said: ‘It was one of the first conversations I would have.

“After the conversation with the manager on duty, I was quite confident that everyone was out.

“I don’t remember asking directly or being told, but I was convinced there was no one left.”

Earlier the inquest heard from Russell Mackay, 58, a retired watch commander at Dumbarton Station.

His crew, along with a crew from Balloch, were rescuing the family of three from their top-floor bedroom.

Mr Mackay’s crew, who were initially largely responsible for putting out the blaze, changed their strategy as soon as they ‘knew they were missing casualties’, the inquest heard.

Firefighters were unaware Mr Midgley and Mr Dyson were missing when they first entered the hotel, he said.

Mr Mackay said: ‘If we had found out the number of people and where they were at the time, we could have contacted them more quickly.
