Boston man will be charged with killing 'small town girl'

BOSTON (AP) — In announcing a murder charge yesterday, Boston’s top prosecutor promised justice for the stabbing death of a 24-year-old “small-town girl” following her abduction last week in a city she came to love.

“Amy Lord was a small town girl, but she came to love Boston and it became the place that she called home,” Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said. “...We will not rest until justice is done in Amy’s horrible murder.”

Conley said Edwin Alemany, a man facing charges for allegedly attacking two other women last week in the same South Boston neighborhood, will face a murder charge in Lord’s death.

The 28-year-old Boston man, previously dubbed a “person of interest” in Lord’s killing, is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at Bridgewater State Hospital after a judge found him unfit for an arraignment in connection with the other attacks. Police arrested Alemany on July 24 after he allegedly stabbed a woman, also charging him with punching a different woman on July 23.

Messages left for Alemany’s attorney, James Greenberg, weren’t immediately returned yesterday.

Police have said Lord was wearing gym clothes on the morning of July 23rd when someone kidnapped her and forced her to withdraw cash from five ATMs machines in less than an hour.

Her Jeep was found ablaze in South Boston about two hours later. A bicyclist discovered the body of the former high school cheerleader and native of Wilbraham, Mass., that afternoon in a park in the city’s Hyde Park section.

Lord was living in South Boston and working for a digital media company after graduating from Bentley University in 2011. While in college, she’d played intramural soccer and studied abroad in Spain. During her funeral this week, she was eulogized as someone who made friends wherever she went.
