More ex-girlfriends, mother of child take the stand against Normil in Bedford break-in trial


Testimony continues against a Massachusetts man facing charges in connection to a Bedford home break-in back in 2012. The jury continues to hear testimony from a landlord and ex-girlfriend while FBI agents have also taken the stand in regards to crime scene evidence.

As the Charles Normil trial goes on the prosecution is waiting for that moment where someone can definitely say that Normil is the guilty party.

New Hampshire Crime Lab and FBI special analyst’s took to the stand and could not directly pinpoint Normil to shoe markings found at the scene.

But a phone conversation with an ex-girlfriend, Leah Mead, may have been evidence enough.

Before the jury they heard a recording of Normil on the phone with Mead.

"Oh *expletive*, it just went across the bottom of the screen. Remember um… I don’t know if you seen it in the news or not… Bedford, New Hampshire? That’s right around you right," said Normil during a phone conversation with Mead.

"Yeah I already saw it," said Mead. "There was a home invasion in November and the couple got injured and then yesterday the wife was found dead."

"The wife was found dead," confirmed Normil.

"Yeah," replied Mead.

"That sounds like a *explicative* revenge story if I ever heard one," said Normil to Mead.

Weeks later Mead was confronted by Bedford Police and asked about Normil’s whereabouts the night of the crime. Then after learning Normil was under investigation and the two spoke on the phone again.

"I’m going to help you and protect myself at the same time, it’s just, apparently I’m not doing a very good job at it," said Mead to Normil on the phone.

"Don’t worry about it," replied Normil, "leave it alone now please."

But police were quickly able to track down the mother of of Normil’s child who gave full testimony on Tuesday about Normil’s alleged link to the Bedford crime, even destroying evidence in her own backyard.

"I saw dark clothing, a pair of sneakers, all of which were covered in blood. He brought them out back of my residence and burned them," said Alicia Maddox, who testified days after the alleged break-in Normil burned what she believed to be the clothing he wore during the attempted murder and rape.

Testimony will resume Wednesday morning.
