Anthony Barnaby's hearing to suppress former homicide confession begins in NH


NASHUA — The hearing to suppress alleged murderer Anthony Barnaby's former confession started Tuesday and will continue through Thursday.

Barnaby, 49, previously confessed to a double homicide in 1988 in the Gate City.

He will now face his fourth trial in April 2017 for the alleged stabbing deaths of same-sex couple Brenda Warner and Charlene Ranstrom nearly 30 years ago, according to the Union Leader.

A second man, David Caplin, 54, is also facing murder charges in connection with the stabbing deaths.

Barnaby and Caplin, who grew up together in the Canadian province of Quebec, are both facing two alternate counts of first-degree murder and two alternate counts of second-degree murder for the deaths of the two women.

The 1988 cold case was reopened a few years ago when evidence on several hair samples and a bloody sock were submitted for modern DNA testing, allowing the new indictments to move forward and the newest arrests of Caplin and Barnaby.
