FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — Authorities have arrested the boyfriend of a woman found stabbed to death in her Framingham apartment.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Framingham police Chief Steven Trask said Tuesday 25-year-old Christopher McKoy, of Brockton, is charged with murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in connection with the death of Jamee Ammons-Maddrey.

Ammons-Maddrey was found in her apartment at about 5:30 p.m. Monday by police making a well-being check after a family member said they could not reach the victim.

Police say McKoy had been with the victim the previous night into the early morning. He was apprehended in Boston.

McKoy faces arraignment Thursday. It could not be determined if he has an attorney.
