EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a stabbing victim in East Longmeadow.

The Hampden district attorney’s office says the victim of the stabbing in a home on Somers Road, which is Route 83, on Tuesday afternoon was 61-year-old Tina Jette.

Matthew Scavotto is charged with murder in the case. The 35-year-old man was held without bail after pleading not guilty Wednesday in Palmer District Court. His attorney did not argue for bail.

Authorities have not disclosed the relationship between the suspect and victim, but both were residents of the home.

The stabbing remains under investigation.
