Lavoie told police he intended to kill himself and “take someone with him,” Morin said.
Lavoie was ordered held on $100,000 cash bail and charged with second-degree assault, disorderly conduct, reckless conduct, placing another in danger and criminal threatening with a deadly weapon. He has been incarcerated since his arrest.
Lavoie would have also received a suspended sentence of a year and a half to three years if the plea bargain were approved, Harrington said.
He would have to spend five years on probation, avoid drugs and alcohol, not possess any weapons, pay the victim’s medical expenses and stay away from her.
Lavoie was represented by public defender Debra DuPont, who could not be reached for comment.
Lavoie also faces several other charges, including criminal threatening and resisting arrest charges, stemming from arrests in Derry in January 2013 and November 2012.
