July 24, 2018

GARDNER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman has been charged with the slaying of a man found near a New Hampshire road earlier this month.

Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. in a statement said 21-year-old Julia Enright of Ashburnham has been charged with murder at an arraignment in Gardner on Tuesday and is being held without bail. Early says Enright and Chicklis had been classmates and knew each other.

The victim, 20-year-old Brandon Chicklis, of Westminster, Massachusetts, was found July 10 in Rindge, New Hampshire. He had been missing for more than two weeks.

The body was found off Route 119 by a jogger, 20 to 40 feet from the roadside. An attorney for Enright has not been immediately identified.

Chicklis’ car was found in a supermarket parking lot in Rindge. Westminster and Rindge are about 15 miles apart.
