Mass. man charged in NH 1991 stabbing death


CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A Massachusetts inmate has been charged with the stabbing death of a New Hampshire woman 21 years ago, and a defense lawyer believes his client — already serving time for two murders — implicated himself.

New Hampshire authorities say 46-year-old Craig Conkey is charged with first-degree murder and an alternate charge of reckless second-degree murder in the 1991 death of Theresa Reed, a 30-year-old associate registrar at Plymouth State University.

According to online corrections records, there is only one Massachusetts inmate named Craig Conkey. Attorney Bernard Grossberg, said he has a client by that name who is serving two life sentences for killing women in Lexington, Mass., in 1992 and 1994, and that his client contacted New Hampshire authorities last year about his involvement in a New Hampshire homicide.
