AG: Man facing murder charge in stabbing death of mother inside New Hampshire home

A man has been arrested on a charge of murder in connection with the stabbing death of his mother inside a home in New Hampshire earlier this week, officials announced Friday.

Thomas Humphrey, 47, is slated to be arraigned Monday in Hillsborough County Superior Court on a charge of second-degree murder in the death of 70-year-old Linda Tufts in Goffstown on Tuesday, Attorney General John M. Formella, State Police Colonel Mark B. Hall, and Goffstown Police Chief Eric Sereno said in a joint news release.

Officers responding to a single-family home in Goffstown around 2:20 p.m. found Tufts’ body, as well as a fire burning inside, according to officials. Humphrey was found alive but injured and was hospitalized for treatment for apparent self-inflicted knife wounds.

An autopsy later determined that Tufts’ cause of death was multiple stab and incised wounds, and the manner of her death was homicide.

An investigation remains ongoing.
