Barnaby to plead guilty in double-murder

NASHUA — Anthony Barnaby is scheduled to plead guilty next week to charges related to his role in the 1988 brutal stabbing deaths of Brenda Warner and Charlene Ranstrom.

Assistant Attorney General Susan Morrell confirmed Thursday that Barnaby will appear in the Hillsborough Superior Court – South in Nashua on Wednesday, Aug. 22 to enter into a plea agreement. He is also due to be sentenced the same day. The details of the plea agreement are not known at this time.
