LITTLETON, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire prosecutors say a 22-year-old Littleton man who was murdered outside of his home last month was a confidential informant for the Bethlehem Police Department.

The Caledonian Record reports (https://bit.ly/28Jjfqe ) state Police Det. Sgt. Justin Rowe confirmed that Robert Pierog acted as an informant in exchange for having a theft charge dropped during testimony Friday in Plymouth District Court.

Police say Pierog was found fatally shot multiple times outside of his West Main Street apartment on May 27.

Prosecutors say 21-year-old Damion Yeargle shot Pierog with a .22-caliber rifle. He faces a charge of first-degree murder.

Assistant Attorney General Geoffrey Ward says the fact that Pierog was an informant was apparently well known in the area.



Yeargle is being held without bail at the Grafton County House of Corrections.
