Grand jury indicts man in murder of jogger in Massachusetts

Massachusetts State Police tweeted this image of Vanessa Marcotte, of New York, after she was found dead in Princeton on Aug. 7, 2016.

WORCESTER, Mass. — A man accused of killing a Google employee who went out for a run near her mother’s Massachusetts home last summer has been indicted.

Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. says a grand jury handed down the indictment Friday against Angelo Colon-Ortiz.

The Worcester resident was arrested 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.

Colon-Ortiz faces charges of aggravated assault and battery and assault with attempt to rape. He’s been in custody since his arrest and will be arraigned later. His lawyer hasn’t commented.
