PARIS — Justice Roland Cole arraigned several people on criminal charges Friday in the Oxford County Superior Court.

Doreen Kimball, 48, of Smith Street in Harrison, pleaded not guilty to aggravated criminal mischief. Kimball, along with her 26-year-old fiance, Gregory E. Swynar, are charged with using a chain saw and sledgehammer to damage or destroy a wall, stair banisters, and a wooden table at her 52-year-old ex-husband’s Waterford home in June.

Kimball’s ex-husband was at home at the time with his 21-year-old son, but neither was injured. Swynar has been indicted on charges of reckless conduct, criminal threatening, and aggravated criminal mischief but has not been arraigned.

Nicholas P. Libby, 23, of Paris Hill Road in Paris, pleaded not guilty to assault. Libby is charged with assaulting his 11-week-old daughter in April. According to a report by Lt. Michael Dailey of the Paris Police Department, the infant’s grandmother picked her up and saw bruising near her eye and bloody mucus in her nose.

Libby had called the woman and asked her to pick up the infant because he was getting frustrated with her crying. Libby told police he has anger management issues but denied hitting his daughter, saying she may have fallen on a toy.

Christian Lewis Ogden, 23, of Engle Town Road in Honey Brook, Pa., pleaded not guilty to two counts of unlawful trafficking in illegal drugs and one count of trafficking in dangerous knives. Ogden is also contesting the forfeiture of $705 in cash.

Ogden and 20-year-old Allen C. Hold of Hemlock Point in Indian Township were stopped by Trooper Paul Casey of the Maine State Police in March as they were driving on Route 2 in Rumford. Casey pulled the vehicle over due to an inadequate taillight, but searched the vehicle after smelling marijuana inside it. Police found 28 grams of cocaine and 16 grams of marijuana in the car, and Casey said the men told him they were taking the drugs to Dartmouth College.

Hold has been charged with two counts of unlawful trafficking in illegal drugs, but has not yet been arraigned.
