Man held on $3M bail in S. Boston non-fatal attacks
BOSTON (WHDH) -- The man accused of attacking two women and killing a third in South Boston was arraigned on the non-fatal attacks Wednesday. He was held on $3 million cash bail.
Edwin Alemany, 28, barely looked up as prosecutors detailed the two violence attacks on South Boston women.
“She was punched in the face, dragged by her legs into a parking lot. She told her attacker he could take everything she had and she told him where she worked. He replied to her at that time, ‘I’m not robbing you. I’m going to kill you’,” said Prosecutor John Pappas.
Prosecutors said Alemany attacked that woman in the early morning of July 23. He let her go after telling her that she wasn’t the one he’s looking for and he had a hit out on someone else, according to prosecutors.
Less than 24 hours later, Alemany was charged with stabbing another woman just blocks away.
“As she was entering the building -- her building -- her apartment, your honor, the man rushed up to her and began stabbing her as she screamed. He stabbed her multiple times in her torso, face and neck area. As he grabbed her by the neck she managed to enter the code -- or finish entering the code -- to open the door and shut it behind her,” said Pappas.
In between those attacks, Alemany is accused of kidnapping, robbing and killing Amy Lord. Her body was found at the Stony Brook Reservation in Hyde Park. Alemany is scheduled to be arraigned for Lord’s death on Thursday in West Roxbury District Court.
Alemany’s family gathered to support him, a man defense lawyers say suffers from severe mental illness.
“He’s a very decent man who acted allegedly very indecently. He has serious, serious problems,” said defense attorney Jeffrey Denner.
Alemany has been under mental evaluation at Bridgewater State Hospital since he was arrested on July 24.
Alemany’s next court appearance related to the non-fatal attacks is set for Nov. 13.
