BEDFORD — Testimony continued against a Massachusetts man facing charges in connection to a home break-in and the brutal physical and sexual assault of a Bedford couple in 2012.
Charles Normil is accused of breaking into the home of Dr. Eduardo Quesada and his wife, Sonia, and brutally assaulting them, both physically and sexually, while the couple's child was upstairs.
The jury heard testimony from the alleged accomplice on Tuesday, and he said the prosecution has the right man.
Nathan Lamontagne, who pleaded guilty in 2014 of charges he faced in connection with the attack, testified in great detail about his involvement that night. He is serving 5 years in prison.
The couple's child was unhurt in the attack. Sonia Quesada died from a prescription overdose in January of 2013.
Lamontagne's testimony included how he and Normil got in the Quesada's Proclamation Court, Bedford, home and even the gloves Normil was wearing the night he beat the Quesadas.
“He was like, ‘I’m going to make money- are you coming or not?'” Lamontagne said.
Lamontagne also described the last phone conversation he had with normal before he allegedly raped and beat the couple.
“I said, ‘hey get the *expletive* out of there, a car pulled in the driveway. A car pulled in there,’ and he was like, ‘I know I’m already out’ and that was the last thing he said to me,” said Lamontagne.
Normil's defense counsel countered Thursday, saying the prosecution can’t directly connect Normil to the crime.
Kevin Horan, a Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent, provided testimony about the ability to pinpoint the location of a cell phone's location using certain abilities inherent in the mobile phone network. “Those multiple sources are saying that the phone is somewhere in this area right here," testified Horan.
Horan attempted to elaborate that Normil’s cell phone usage showed he was near the home during the night of the break-in, but it was not conclusive as to his exact location.
On the witness stand, Dr. Quesada said, “We were attacked and nearly killed, why do you emphasize the location? It doesn’t make a damn bit of difference.”
Lamontagne will resume his testimony on the stand Friday to answer more questions from the prosecution.
