Boston Man Charged With Assaulting, Injuring Pregnant Woman: TEWKSBURY--A 26-year-old Boston man is facing multiple felony charges after allegedly holding a pregnant woman against her will in a Tewksbury motel and then beating her when she tried to escape.
Mark Silvia, of 39 Boylston St, was arrested after police responded to a 911 call from a guest at the Motel Caswell, reporting a possible domestic assault in the adjacent room.
According to the Tewksbury Police report, further investigation revealed that Silvia had held the victim against her will in the motel room for over two-and-a-half hours. During this time, Silvia allegedly verbally and physically assaulted the victim, slapping her in the face.
School Appeals Officially Dismissed by Commissioner: WILMINGTON--Petitioners against the new Wilmington High School have been dealt another blow in their appeal efforts as the Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner ruled that he will not reconsider his decision to accept the dismissal of the school appeals.
Commissioner Kenneth Kimmell sent notice to the involved parties late Wednesday that he adopted the decision of Hearings Officer Timothy Jones, who ruled that there was no merit to the appeals and thus they should not reach the hearing.
The appealing parties now have 30 days to appeal the project to Superior Court, which is likely the final step in the process.
