Christopher McKoy, 25, of Brockton, had allegedly been with the victim, Jamee Ammons-Maddrey, 27, the night before and on Monday morning. Officials obtained more evidence that was enough to charge McKoy, they said. He’s being charged with murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury, a news release from the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office said.
It was around 5:30 p.m. Monday that police found Ammons-Maddrey dead in her Interfaith Terrace home from what appeared to be multiple stab wounds, according to the release. A member of the victim’s family had been unable to contact her or get into her home; they called police for a well-being check.
Police believe McKoy stabbed Ammons-Madrey multiple times before fleeing the scene. He was arrested on Tuesday in Boston for allegedly removing a GPS monitor in connection with a case in Suffolk County and is being held. A warrant was issued Tuesday out of Framingham District Court in connection with the stabbing; his arraignment hasn’t been scheduled yet.
