    Jonathan Amerault (25) was shot to death and Armando Barron (30) and his wife Britany (31) have been arrested on capital murder

    A New Hampshire couple has been arrested in the shooting death of man whose body was found earlier in the week.

    Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said that Armando Barron, 30, of Jaffrey was arrested Friday and charged with capital murder in the shooting death of Jonathan Amerault, 25, of Keene. Barron is accused of luring Amerault to Annette Wayside Park in Rindge, New Hampshire, between September 19 and September 20.

    Barron?s wife, Britany, 31, was arrested Thursday and charged with three counts of falsifying physical evidence in connection with Amerault?s murder.

    Amerault?s body was discovered in Atkinson and Gilmanton Academy Grant in Coos County on Tuesday after he had been reported missing on Sept. 21. An autopsy determined he had been shot in the head and the manner of death was homicide.

    A number for the couple had been disconnected and it was unclear if they had a lawyer.

    After he murdered his wife’s lover, Armando Barron ordered Britany Barron to cut off the head of Jonathan Amerault and bury it at a remote campsite in the Northwoods, according to police.

    Now, both Armando Barron, 30, and Britany Barron, 31, are facing charges for their respective roles in Amerault’s killing. Armando Barron was arrested and charged Thursday with assaulting Britany Barron in connection with the murder investigation, according to an affidavit filed in Cheshire Superior Court.

    Armando Barron allegedly discovered that Britany Barron was having an affair with Amerault, 25, from Keene, and then used her cell phone on Saturday to lure Amerault to Annette Wayside Park in Rindge. Britany Barron told police that her husband had savagely beat her after discovering her affair with Amerault, at one point during the assault he put a loaded pistol in her mouth.

    At Annette Wayside Park, Armando Barron violently assaulted Amerault and tried to force his wife to shoot him, even putting the gun in her hands and wrapping his hand over hers, according to the police affidavit written by New Hampshire State Police Detective Stephen Sloper.

    After Armando Barron tried and failed to get Britany Barron to step on Amerault’s neck, he forced her to cut her lovers’ wrists, according to Sloper. Armando Barron then shot Amerault three times.

    The couple drove up to the Errol campground with Britany Barron being forced to drive Amerault’s Subaru up to the woods. There, she was forced to cut off Amerault’s head with a saw, and bury it in the woods. Amerault’s body was wrapped in a tarp and buried near a brook, and his car was covered with a tarp, according to Sloper’s affidavit.

    Amerault failed to show up for work on Monday, and his mother had reported him missing to Keene police, according to New Hampshire State Police Detective Matthew Anderson’s affidavit.

    Police contacted Teleflex Medical in Jaffrey where Amerault worked and learned he did not call out, but that his co-worker, Britany Barron was also out of work. Teleflex employees told police Britany Barron called to say she would not be at work and was likely quitting her job. Employees also told police they believed Britany Barron and Amerault were in a relationship.

    Police contacted Armando Barron and he told detectives that he was despondent over the breakup of his marriage. He told detectives he last saw his wife Saturday night when he dropped her off at the side of the road in Temple so that she could go camping with friends. He then drove to Errol in Coos County, a three and a half-hour drive, and then returned home, he told police.

    Anderson writes that police used cell phone signal data to locate Britany Barron. Her phone was last connected to a cell tower in Errol, and New Hampshire Fish and Game conservation officers found her at a campsite in the woods in Atkinson and Gilmanton Academy Grant.

    Police say Britany Barron was alone at the campsite and armed. Near her was a large object covered by a tarp and covered with sticks and branches.

    “I’m in big trouble,” she reportedly said to the officers.

    The conservation officers report seen blood run out of the bound tarp covering Amerault’s headless body.

    Britany Barron told police that she burned Amerault’s belongings and wiped down his car and was waiting for her husband to return. He was heading up to the campsite with their 9-year-old daughter and dirt and concrete, according to Sloper’s affidavit.

    He was stopped and arrested in Coos County, though the affidavit is not exact, stating he was arrested in the State Police Troop F jurisdiction.

    Anderson’s report indicates that police found Armando Barron’s car left in a Jaffrey parking lot and that there were visible red, brown stains inside.
