NH hunter - convicted of negligent killing - facing lawsuit

The Associated Press

NORTH HAVERHILL — A New Hampshire hunter who was sentenced to two to four years after being convicted in the shooting death of a Massachusetts man is now fighting a wrongful death lawsuit.

Wade Holmes of Lisbon was convicted in September 2013 of negligently killing 31-year-old Kenneth Brunelle of Marlboro, Mass.

He also was convicted of reckless conduct with a deadly weapon.

Brunelle was unarmed, and walking with his father and brother on opening day of firearm deer season when he was killed.

The Caledonian Record reports Brunelle's partner, Tiffanie Parks, is accusing the 51-year-old Holmes of four counts of negligence in Grafton Superior Court. Parks is the administrator of his estate.

The case is tentatively scheduled for a jury trial in March. Attorneys for Holmes say he denies acting negligently.
