Richard Hanson Wiki – Richard Hanson Biography

A Newton man is being held without bail and facing charges in connection with a fatal assault on his wife at their home Saturday night, two days after a restraining order was issued against him, authorities said on Sunday. Richard Hanson, 64, has been charged with assault with intent to murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing grievous bodily injury in connection with the death of his wife, Nancy Hanson, 54, the District Attorney of Middlesex Marian Ryan and Newton. Police Chief John Carmichael said in a statement.

Nancy Hanson died two days after a restraining order was issued against her husband Thursday in Newton District Court, which Newton police had been trying to enforce, Ryan said. At approximately 8:21 p.m. On Saturday, a minor inside the couple’s Brookline Street home called 911 to report the ongoing assault, Ryan said. When police arrived, they found Nancy Hanson suffering from apparent blunt force injuries, Ryan said. She was taken by ambulance to Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where she died.

A preliminary investigation found that during a physical altercation, Richard Hanson allegedly hit his wife with one or more objects multiple times, Ryan said. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled the death a homicide and the cause of death was blunt force trauma, Ryan said.

Why Richard Hanson killed his wife

Investigators said they anticipate additional charges. The murder of his next-door neighbor, Nancy Hanson, brought overwhelming sadness to Mark Staz and his family, who recall that she made an instant impression when they moved to Newton’s Oak Hill neighborhood. “She was a very nice person and she was the first to welcome us into the community when we moved here a year ago,” Staz said. “The first thing we did was my wife went out to the police officer and told her if the kids needed a place to come, bring them.”

Staz told Boston 25 News that the Hansons have three children, the youngest of whom just finished fifth grade at Memorial Spaulding Elementary School. “We have three children of our own, just thinking about what that trauma would be like for a child is devastating,” Staz said. “You would just hear the children playing. Their kids play basketball, they play baseball in the backyard. They skateboard back there, so we hear that but we don’t fight.”


In a statement Sunday, Newton Mayor Ruthanne Fuller called Saturday’s incident “another horrible tragedy in Newton.” “I know I speak for everyone in Newton when I say my heart goes out to the woman’s family and friends,” Fuller said. “The woman who was killed appears to be a victim of domestic violence. The victim’s husband was arrested at the scene by Newton Police officers after responding to a 911 call and remains in the custody of the Newton Police Department.”

“Violence in relationships is all too prevalent in our country, and Newton is no exception,” Fuller said. “If you or someone you care about is being mistreated or feel like a partner is taking away your options, click here for a list of area resources.” Nancy Hanson’s death follows the murders of three people at her Newton home last month. Jill and Bruno D’Amore and Jill’s mother, Lucia Arpino, were found stabbed and beaten to death in her Broadway Street home on June 25. Christopher Ferguson, 41, of Newton, faces murder charges in that case.

The mayor said the community is still reeling from those murders. “I write this just three weeks after the tragic murders of Jill and Bruno D’Amore and Jill’s mother, Lucia Arpino,” Fuller said. “Our community is reeling, and I know many of us are feeling uneasy. This is the time to reach out to family, friends, religious leaders, and mental health professionals instead of ducking and doing it alone.”


Richard Hanson, who was charged Saturday night, is expected to be arraigned Monday in Newton District Court, Ryan said. The couple’s children have been placed in the custody of the Department of Children and Families, a DCF spokesperson told Boston 25 News. The Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, Massachusetts State Police detectives assigned to Ryan’s office and Newton Police are conducting an investigation.Read More………
