Bail increased for man arrested in deadly robbery on Nashua bike path


NASHUA - A man accused of assaulting and robbing a Nashua man who later died is being held on high bail.

Stephan Peno was arraigned Wednesday after police arrested him Monday night. Peno was wanted for a deadly robbery involving Benjamin Marcum, 49, who later died of his injuries.

Peno and his alleged accomplice, Jonathan Goff, are accused of attacking Marcum on a bike path near his Nashua apartment in March. Marcum died within hours after being stabbed several times by Goff, police said.

17-year-old Goff is facing second degree murder charges. Peno is facing robbery and falsifying evidence charges.

Investigators say Peno stole Marcum's wallet and tossed it in a dumpster.

During Wednesday's arraignment, the judge agreed with N.H. Assistant Attorney General Ben Agati to have Peno's bail raised from $50,000 to $100,000.

Peno will be in court next week.
