• NH police take Epping man into custody for ex-wife's murder


    EPPING, N.H. (MyFoxBoston.com/AP) -- A 36-year-old Epping man was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with first-degree murder for the death of Amy Warf.

    Aaron Desjardens is scheduled to be arraigned for his ex-wife's murder on Wednesday.

    According to Desjardins, he and Warf were married for seven years before they divorced in February 2012. Desjardins has since remarried and claims he was at his home last Thursday when Warf's body was discovered.

    "I have been up front, honest and have opened my home and all of my belongings to the police to prove my innocence," Desjardins said. "I think that says it all."

    Desjardins said he thought things were going well for Warf who had met someone else. He said he and Warf had come to a full agreement on the custody of their son and were just working out a final parenting plan.

    On March 7, firefighters in Exeter responded to a vacant business on Hampton Road for a report of a fire and discovered Warf's body among the debris.

    The chief medical examiner has since performed an autopsy and determined the cause of the 26-year-old's death was from incised wounds on her neck.

    According to Warf's obituary, she for the billing department at Exeter Hospital and had worked at Hair Excitement previously.

    Desjardins was a chef for many years.

    Anyone with information regarding this incident or the suspect is asked to contact the New Hampshire State Police at 603-271-3636.
