WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A man accused of killing a Google employee who went out for a run near her mother’s Massachusetts home last summer will be arraigned on a murder charge next month.
The Worcester (WUS’-tur) County district attorney’s office says Angelo Colon-Ortiz is due in court on July 26.
Colon-Ortiz is charged in connection with the death of 27-year-old Vanessa Marcotte last August in Princeton, a small town 40 miles (64 kilometers) west of Boston.
Prosecutors say Colon-Ortiz was apprehended in April after his DNA matched samples on Marcotte’s body, which was found in the woods not far from her family home.
