Londonderry family disputes star-gazing stabbing

Woman charged with stabbing father over Big Dipper argument


Stephen agreed to the request, but gave the young woman a stern warning.

“This is a serious charge,” the judge said. “Ms. Svenson, be very careful in the future.”

Londonderry police prosecutor Kevin Coyle agreed that her bail remain the same.

The case is being forwarded to the Rockingham County Attorney’s Office for review. Nadja Svenson now faces possible indictment by a grand jury. She was represented in court yesterday by public defender Tara Witt.

As the family left the courthouse, Robert Svenson disputed police accounts of the incident, saying they were distorted and blown out of proportion. He said he was not stabbed because of an argument over stars.

“It was a small accident,” he said, declining to comment further.

Yesterday, Olson confirmed the details reported to police based on their interviews with the family.
