AUGUSTA -- A grand jury has added kidnapping to a list of charges a Gardiner man already faces involving an incident in which his girlfriend suffered a stab wound, broken ribs and a punctured lung.
David F. Dineen Jr.
David F. Dineen Jr., 49, was indicted Thursday by a grand jury in Kennebec County Superior Court on charges of kidnapping and criminal restraint and two counts of aggravated assault. The criminal restraint charge lists one of the woman's two sons as a victim. The other charges name her as the victim of the alleged offenses, which occurred between Oct. 11 and 13 in Gardiner.
Dineen has been free on $35,000 cash bail since shortly after his arrest and recently his bail conditions were changed to allow him to leave the state for work.
"We received just this week a pile of documents in this case," said Dineen's attorney, Walter McKee. "We'll sort through them and start preparing our defense accordingly."
An indictment is not a determination of guilt, but means there is enough evidence to proceed with formal charges and a trial.
In a separate case, a Corinna man also was indicted on three charges of gross sexual misconduct that allegedly occurred nearly 30 years ago.
Glenn A. Graves, 56, was arrested in Winthrop on the indictment on Thursday afternoon and posted $1,500 bail.
He is accused of engaging in sexual acts with two different girls under the age of 14 in Winthrop between Oct. 9, 1985, and April 1, 1987.

* Joshua L. Belyea, 24, of Augusta, domestic violence assault and violation of condition of release Oct. 10 in Augusta.
