High Bail for NH Couple in Child Endangerment Case

PLAISTOW, N.H. (AP) — A fugitive couple arrested at a Florida theme park have been arraigned in New Hampshire on charges in the beating and burning of the woman’s 3-year-old son.

Separate video arraignments were held Monday morning for the two in Plaistow District Court.

The boy’s mother, 23-year-old Jessica Linscott, was ordered held on $100,000 bail. Her boyfriend, 27-year-old Roland Dow, was ordered held on $500,000 bail.

Both have been ordered not to have contact with each other or with the child.

Linscott and Dow were arrested last week by federal marshals at Universal Studios in Orlando following two weeks on the run. They were jailed in New Hampshire on Saturday.

Dow is charged with first- and second-degree assault. He and Linscott face multiple charges of child endangerment.
