He is murdered by Nina. Father Gwynne- He is Father Szyszynki's step brother, and is the person who raped Nathaniel. After picking her son up from preschool, Nina discovered that he would not talk. Following the doctor's suggestion, they took Nathaniel to see a psychiatrist, who started teaching him sign language at his daily appointments. After Nathaniel signed father when asked who hurt him, Nina accused Caleb of abusing his son. Then, following Patrick's further investigation and time spent talking to a silent Nathaniel, Nathaniel spoke his first words, Father Glen, identifying the person who hurt him. This led to Father Glen's arrest. During father Glen's trial, a distraught Nina, walked over to the priest and shot him four times, killing him. This led to her arrest, and Nathaniel regressing to silence Knowing she needed a good defense attorney, Nina hired Fisher Carrington Fisher got her placed on house arrest, which was what Nathaniel needed to start speaking again. When Nina had one of her friends at the crime laboratory look at the DNA results from Nathaniel's boxers and from Father Glen, she discovered that they were not a match. This information led Nina and Patrick to further investigate her son's assault case and to learn that Father Gywnn, Father Glen's step-brother, was the real assailant. The fact that his wife killed an innocent man was too much for Caleb to handle, causing him take Nathaniel and leave Nina. Though it was a difficult trial, Fisher Carrington tried his best to convince the jury that Nina was insane at the time of the murder. However, after days of deliberation, the jury could still not come to a decision. This led to Nina and Fisher's decision to let the judge decide her fate. The judge decided Nina was not insane at the time of the murders. However, he decided that she had fear and extreme anger at the time, which under Maine law determines her not guilty. Caleb and Nathaniel moved back in with Nina.
