A Lebanon man faces up to 25 years in New Hampshire State Prison after announcing his intent to plead guilty to manslaughter in the January 2020 death of an elderly North Haverhill man, who died two months after a carjacking. Brenden P. Harriman, 23, entered into the proposed plea agreement that calls for 12 to 25 years to serve in state prison. On the day of the attack on 79 year old David E. Dickey, the assault occurred a half-hour after Harriman’s release from the Grafton County House of Corrections on a charge of assaulting a baby. On the afternoon of Nov. 4, Dickey, driving a Jeep, had seen Harriman walking and offered to give Harriman a ride. Minutes later, prosecutors said Harriman punched Dickey in the nose, fracturing it and causing serious bodily injury, to steal the Jeep and drive it to Lebanon, where Harriman told a friend to tell police that he had picked up Harriman from the jail in North Haverhill. Harriman was transported to the state prison, in Concord, where he is presently housed.
