NH couple accused of abuse in court for witness tampering


(MyFoxBoston.com) – A Plaistow, N.H., couple accused of abusing a 3-year-old boy will be in court Thursday for additional charges.

Roland Dow and Jessica Linscott will be arraigned for witness tampering.

The pair fled the state in November after dropping Linscott's son, James, off at Exeter Hospital. Police say he had been badly beaten.

They were picked up by police at Universal Studios in Orlando two weeks later. Prosecutors said the couple told Linscott's son what to say before a social worker visit.
Dow is already facing assault charges.

Linscott faces child endangerment charges.
The boy is living with family and is reportedly recovering well.
