Man charged with attempted murder after incident in Guilford
DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine (WABI) - A Guilford man facing a number of charges, including attempted murder, went before a judge Monday morning.
Forty-one-year-old Tory Littlefield made his initial appearance in a Dover-Foxcroft courtroom.
Littlefield was arrested Friday night after authorities say he shot at his girlfriend three times.
According to police, Littlefield’s girlfriend said he woke her up because he was mad the electricity in their house wasn’t working.
Authorities say he assaulted her, shot at her, and threatened to burn the home down.
Littlefield didn’t enter a plea on Monday, but the judge did set bail at $20,000 and ordered him to have no contact with his girlfriend.
“Domestic violence prevails in this state. It’s a problem. We try to address it as harshly as we can. Keeping a defendant confined in a situation like this is important so that the victim is safe. That’s an important consideration. And, of course, guns are involved which makes it even worse,” said Christopher Almy, Piscataquis County assistant DA.
According to Almy, Littlefield is due back in court in March.
