NH couple charged in boy burning case due in court


Jessica Linscott and Roland Dow

ORLANDO, Fla. - A fugitive couple arrested at Universal Studios Orlando will voluntarily return to New Hampshire to face charges in the beating and burning of the woman's 3-year-old son.
A judge accepted the extradition waiver of 23-year-old Jessica Linscott and her boyfriend, 27-year-old, Roland Dow, on Friday morning during an informal document exchange. Neither was in the courtroom, and it's unclear when they'll return to New Hampshire.
They were arrested by federal marshals Wednesday evening at Universal Studios after being on the run for two weeks.
Dow was 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 Nicholson, who remains hospitalized at Children's Hospital at Dartmouth in Lebanon, N.H.

The boy is in serious condition.
