Former Nashua man back in court on charges of attempted murder after being deemed incompetent in 2015
NASHUA - A man who was ruled incompetent to stand trial was back in court Tuesday. Prosecutors refiled charges against Mohammad Salimullah for allegedly slashing his wife's throat in 2013.
According to The Telegraph, Salimullah, 38, is at New Hampshire State Hospital in Concord on a civil commitment order. He was ruled incompetent to stand trial in 2014, and prosecutors dismissed the charges in 2015 when state hospital personnel said in a report Salimullah was still incompetent to stand trial.
Police responded to a domestic disturbance Aug. 14, 2013, and found Salimullah's wife with a laceration on her neck that took 20 stitches to close. She said Salimullah assaulted her with a foot-long knife.
He has been charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless conduct.
Prosecutors did not say why they have re-filed the charges.
Salimullah is being held on $250,000 personal recognizance bail, which will revert to $250,000 cash or surety bail if Salimullah is allowed to leave hospital property.
