RUMFORD — A Maine man expected to testify in the death of a New Hampshire inmate has been charged with robbery, kidnapping and assault.
Randall Chapman was arrested by Maine State Police in Gray on Wednesday. The 37-year-old Chapman has been wanted since May 19 when he fled from police.
He is supposed to testify in the July trial William Edic, who is charged with helping kill inmate Anthony Renzzulla at the New Hampshire State Prison. Chapman, who was an inmate at the time, admitted mopping up Renzzulla’s blood after the attack.
In Maine, Chapman is charged with slashing a kidnapped victim’s face during a robbery. Chapman was allegedly trying to get the victim to withdraw money from an ATM.
The Sun Journal reports that Chapman pleaded not guilty Wednesday to robbery, kidnapping and aggravated assault. He was held on $50,000 bail.
It was not clear if Chapman had a lawyer.
