DOVER — A man accused of stabbing a University of New Hampshire student has pleaded not guilty to first-degree assault.
Matthew Gibbons, 20, of Salem, allegedly stabbed Dean Skelley, 20, twice outside his apartment at 17 Madbury Road in the early morning hours of Feb. 20.
According to the Union Leader, Gibbons is free on $100,000 bail but is prohibited from traveling to Durham or contacting Skelley.
Eric Denning, 21, also was charged in connection with the same incident. He allegedly punched another man, Casey Calvio.
Denning was released on $50,000 personal recognizance bail and is under the supervision of Strafford County Community Corrections.
Both Gibbons and Denning have been suspended from UNH, because of the seriousness of the assault charges.
