Man fires gun during argument over who would cook dinner

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — A lifelong resident of the Ascutney area fired several shots into the floor of his home Saturday night during an argument with his wife and adult daughter over whether or not he was going to cook his own dinner, according to witnesses and police.

After spending the previous two nights in jail, a subdued Charlie Johnson, 59, sat in the courtroom in White River Junction Monday afternoon and pleaded innocent to two felony counts of first degree aggravated domestic assault with a deadly weapon and two accompanying misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment.

Several state troopers, game wardens and police officers from Weathersfield and surrounding towns responded to Gird Lot Road at 7:20 p.m. Saturday following a 911 call from Johnson’s adult daughter saying that at least four rounds had been fired inside the residence while she and her mother had been standing nearby.
