A Massachusetts man charged in connection with the murder of a Google executive in Princeton last August was indicted for murder. Angelo Colon-Ortiz, 31, of Worcester, was indicted by a grand jury on Friday for murder in the death of 27-year-old Vanessa Marcotte, who was killed while jogging.
Marcotte, a New York City resident, was in Princeton visiting family when she went on a morning jog. Her body was found in the woods not far from her family's home later that evening, naked and burned, according to the Daily News. She had suffered "crushing injuries to the structures surrounding her throat,” according to NECN.
Colon-Ortiz is being held on $10 million bail. He was an employer of FedEx, and delivered packages in the area according to NECN. A cheek swab taken from Colon-Ortiz matched DNA found underneath Marcotte's fingernails.
Colon-Ortiz will be arraigned at an unscheduled date.
