NH hunter, convicted of negligent killing Massachusetts man, facing wrongful death lawsuit


NORTH HAVERHILL, New Hampshire — A New Hampshire hunter who was sentenced to two to four years after being convicted in the shooting death of a Massachusetts man is now fighting a wrongful death lawsuit.

Wade Holmes of Lisbon was convicted in September 2013 of negligently killing 31-year-old Kenneth Brunelle of Marlboro, Massachusetts. He also was convicted of reckless conduct with a deadly weapon.

Brunelle was unarmed, and walking with his father and brother on opening day of firearm deer season when he was killed.

The Caledonian Record reports (http://bit.ly/1IxI0nH ) Brunelle's partner, Tiffanie Parks, is accusing the 51-year-old Holmes of four counts of negligence in Grafton Superior Court. Parks is the administrator of his estate.

The case is tentatively scheduled for a jury trial in March. Attorneys for Holmes say he denies acting negligently.
