Cash and drugs seized by Maine Drug Enforcement agents in arrest of Christopher Carbone.
According to online records, Jessica Linscott, 23, and her boyfriend, Roland Dow, 27, were in custody Saturday night at the Rockingham County jail.
The Plaistow couple waived extradition on Friday, two days after they were arrested by federal marshals at Universal Studios in Orlando following two weeks on the run.
Dow is charged with first- and second-degree assault. He and Linscott face multiple charges of child endangerment for failing to protect and get medical attention for 3-year-old James, who remains hospitalized at Children's Hospital at Dartmouth in Lebanon, N.H.
Corrections officials say Linscott and Dow have denied media requests for interviews.
Hunter gored by antler after shooting 8-point deer
A 54-year-old New Hampshire deer hunter is recovering after an eight-point buck gored him with an antler after being shot.
Everett Gray of Cornish shot the deer near his home Thursday afternoon and then moved in to finish the kill with a knife.
He said that's when the white-tail lunged at him, piercing his abdomen with an antler point and lifting him off the ground.
Gray told the Valley News the deer rammed its head into his stomach and pushed him down a slope before he managed to dislodge the antler point from his side.
While Gray was treated at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, his brother and a few friends went into the woods and dragged the buck back to his house and hung it in his garage.
Stores, restaurants found to be mislabeling seafood
A published report says new DNA testing shows that restaurants and stores across Massachusetts are still mislabeling their seafood, a year after the problem was disclosed.
The Boston Globe reports that restaurants and stores continue to sell cheaper, lower-quality fish wrongly labeled as more expensive and higher-quality varieties.
An investigation by the Globe published last year prompted promises by state health officials to discourage the mislabeling of seafood.
The newspaper reported Sunday that the results of a new round of DNA tests on fish underscores an ongoing lack of regulation in the nation's seafood trade.
The test results showed a host of mislabeling, including the mismarking of Pacific cod as the more expensive Atlantic species, hybrid bass as the higher quality striped bass and tilapia as red snapper.
