Mr. Roe, the former vice president of finance at Moses Taylor Healthcare System, was arrested Aug. 17 on a two-count criminal complaint that charged him with wire fraud and interstate transport of stolen funds. The complaint has been sealed so it could not be determined why he was arrested, but court papers filed to have him jailed for violating bail conditions suggest the charges involve his job at Danbury Hospital and a financial arrangement he had with the hospital and the sale of a house.
Mr. Roe, who was appointed CFO at Danbury Hospital in March 2009, according to the hospital's website, was released following his arraignment on the wire fraud charges on Aug. 17. As a condition of his bail, he was instructed not to contact any witnesses and to stay away from Danbury Hospital, except to get his car.
Despite the warnings, Mr. Roe placed hourly phone calls to Dr. Murphy and fired off a series of e-mails, including one saying he wanted the case against him to "go away," prosecutors said.
