Man accused of entering home through dog door
Rockland — A 47-year-old South Thomaston man had bail set at $750 Aug. 29 after he entered the home of a woman through a dog door and threatened to kill her.
Randall J. Willis was arrested and charged with domestic violence terrorizing after he entered the home of a woman he was estranged from and told her he wanted to kill her, according to court papers.
The victim said he was able to break into the South Thomaston home through the pet door.
Knox County Sheriff Deputies Nathaniel Jack and Lt. Kirk Guerrette interviewed the victim after she called another person for help when her car would not start as she attempted to leave the residence.
When the victim asked Willis to leave her home, he refused. She told police she did not want to stay in the home because she was afraid he would hurt her, but said he did not assault her.
According to an affidavit filed in Sixth District Court, when police interviewed Willis at the home, he was intoxicated and denied threatening the victim.
Willis is scheduled to appear in court again Oct. 16.
