Mass. man indicted in fatal stabbing of woman

December 31, 2013

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A Hampden County grand jury has indicted a 22-year-old Springfield man on a murder charge in the stabbing death of a Chicopee woman.

The Republican newspaper of Springfield (http://bit.ly/19BhJAu ) reports that Dennis Rosa-Roman will be arraigned in Superior Court on Jan. 7.

Rosa-Roman pleaded not guilty at an earlier court appearance in Chicopee District Court. He’s charged with the August 2011 fatal stabbing of 20-year-old Amanda Plasse.

Prosecutors have not released information about a possible motive or whether there was any connection between the suspect and the victim.

The district attorney’s office is appealing a judge’s order to lift an impoundment order on documents in the case.

The investigation drew controversy after a patrolman and a sergeant took cellphone photos at the crime scene and shared them with other officers.
