Woman faces felony charge of trespassNovember 23,2013Woman facing
MANCHESTER — A South Londonderry woman is facing a felony charge after entering another woman’s home in Manchester and refusing to leave, police said.
Nancy Magoon, 57, of South Londonderry, pleaded innocent Monday in Bennington criminal court to a felony charge of unlawful trespass into an occupied home. She was released without bail.
In an affidavit, Officer Jason Thomas of the Manchester Police Department said he met with Tanya Parker on Oct. 18. Parker gave police a copy of a conversation, conducted by instant message, from Sept. 14.
The transcript showed that Parker had told Magoon to stay away from her Manchester home.
However, Parker gave police a statement that said Magoon had come to her home on Sept. 15, came inside the home about three steps and wouldn’t leave.
“(Parker) states Nancy Magoon’s actions by refusing to leave after at least 10 requests by Parker caused her to feel nervous and cornered while at her residence,” Thomas said.
According to the affidavit, Thomas spoke with Magoon on Oct. 20. Thomas said she admitted to getting the request from Parker not to go to the Parker home but said “she didn’t feel it was something she needed to comply with as she viewed Parker as family.”
