MANCHESTER - Jurors are deliberating the case of a man accused of a brutal 2012 home break-in in Bedford.
“The puzzle is complete, the picture shows and proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Charles Normil is guilty of each of these charges,” said Assistant Hillsborough County Attorney Andrew Ouellette.
Normil is faced with 14 charges including attempted murder, felonious sexual assault and burglary.
Prosecutors said Normil broke into the home of an anesthesiologist and his wife and attacked them when they returned home from the movies on Nov. 24, 2012.
Prosecutors said cell phone records show Normil was with Nathan Lamontagne - the man who testified against Normil in exchange for a plea deal.
Defense attorneys for Normil said there is no direct evidence that Normil was in the home the night of the attack, and there’s no way the victims could have identified the man that was wearing a black ski mask and gloves.
“There’s no hair evidence, no tire track evidence, no fiber evidence,” said Attorney Sarah Rothman.
Normil is currently serving a 25-year sentence in Massachusetts for a violent home invasion that left a woman blind.
Jurors began deliberating the case just after 2 p.m. Wednesday and will resume Thursday.
