This guy does not deserve to be out on bail. He will only attack another woman if he is loose. Lock him up until his trial(s) are over and then to jail.

We need a total ban on scissors in CT. Or, could CT require a scissor safety training course for $40.00 per person and bi-yearly licensing fees of $80.00 per person, as a way of collecting more money to fund early release programs?

I guess no one in court - during the other two charges - took this idiot seriousy enough to INCREASE the bond so he couldn't get out.

I'd LOVE to know who the judge was in the other two cases.

Just think, if he couldn't have afforded to bond out her woul dhave never done this to the woman.

No, no no.... When they are arested, and still awaiting arraignment at court (in this case, Monday), it would be the police and/or the bail commissioner that arranges the amount of the bail.

As for the previous cases, after arraignment in front of the judge, it would have been the judge who determined the bail after consideration of the flight risk, the person's risk they would offend again, etc......

on't forget however, even after the bail is set, a bondsmoan (sort of a legal loan shark) will front the amount of thebail in a "loan" for what is suppossed to be 10% of the total bail amount.(I.e.$100,00 bail can walk free - awaiting court - for $10,000. Either cash, secured assets, house with equity, etc... Many enterprises bonds people will even take a car based on blue book value after deducting a percentage as well.........) In the past few years, there has been controversy regarding bond agents that accept as little as 2 or 3% of the total bail! That's right, 2-3% With so many bond companies and so much competition, they lower their rates.

The effect is that a person whose bond was placed high due to their risk is often able to get out on only a fraction of that gaurantee! Sad, huh? That means for as little as $20,000 or $30,000 (easy amount of equity in a home), a murderer - while awaiting trial - can be free on the street......

I live in the same hallway where this incident occurred and I am extremely concerned with the level of security here at the building. I am also baffled as to how an apartment complex that host background checks before accepting new applicants allowed a man like this to be living in the building. I do not feel safe and some form of action must take place. We pay copious amount of money to live here. I personally moved into an apartment here because I felt safe... not anymore.

Dear Anonymous, MOVE OUT like most people have already done. I moved out 2 years ago after my car was stolen.

Gee sure hope the woman/victim gets back together with him.
Be interesting to know who the victim(s) were from the previous incidents.

Why this man was out freely walking around baffles me. To the poor residents in that apartment complex and witnessed or heard what was going on, I feel bad for you all. That entire community has horrible reviews, anywhere from safety issues to horrible staff and their general stupidity. Unfortunately, with the economy being what it is, they may look past ones criminal background just to rent the apartment. And I agree their rental prices are ridiculous! I suggest to anonymous to speak with a lawyer about what you can do to break your lease so you may live somewhere where you actually feel safe and secure, because I am sure that the property owners/management will put up a big stink if you tell them you want to break your lease to move because of the incident. I once lived in that area, NOT in those apartments, and did so for 3 years, and stuff went missing and had a neighbor with a criminal past whom actually threatened my family with a gun. Get yourself out of that side of Manchester, you will be doing yourself a favor.
Good luck to any and all tenants who live there, and now feel even less safe and want out!!
Call CT Housing Authority to see what your rights are, or CT Legal Aid, or even a lawyer whom specializes in that sort of stuff. GOOD LUCK TO ALL!

Manchester is a great town to raise a family. The massive overdevelopment has only brought in lots of wonderful people who can baby sit for you and carry your bags at the many beautiful shopping outlets.

People who say Manchester is a concrete wasteland completely ruined by a greedy Republican town council clearly don't know what they're talking about. The victim in this story was probably a crazy liberal who deserved the repeated stabbings, otherwise something like this could never have happened in scenic Manchester.

I'm sure the Republicans running the town council never intended to allow the handful of blacks and other minorities to move into the millions of crummy apartment complexes that they approved for development. Whatever you do, don't blame the wonderful Republicans for their great efforts to build Manchester into a massive commercial and low-rent sprawl.
