Lynn man arrested for August 2013 East Boston homicide

The former boyfriend of a woman who was found dead in East Boston last year has been arrested and charged with her murder, police said.

Chhoeut Chin, 42, of Lynn was arrested Friday in Lowell by members of the Boston police fugitive unit on murder charges in the slaying of his girlfriend in 2013, authorities said. He will be arraigned Monday in East Boston District Court, police said.

On Aug. 1, 2013, officers responded to 800 Border St., where they discovered a body, later identified as Sherry Bradley, 32, of Lynn. The medical examiner ruled Bradley’s death a homicide in April, police said.
