Man pleads not guilty in Everett woman’s killing
Hundreds attend funeral just before
She was witty, kind, and easy going, which made Jessica Cormier the “best human being,’’ one friend said before her funeral yesterday. Two hours later, the man accused of killing the 20-year-old Everett woman pleaded not guilty in her death. Cormier was killed by two stab wounds to the heart last Tuesday night on the porch of her home at 83 Pearl St., blows that Middlesex Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Keeley said were delivered by Clarence Earl Berry, 59.
