A Lynn man was ordered held without bail today after being arraigned in East Boston District Court in the slaying of a 32-year-old woman who had been his girlfriend.
Chhoeut Chin, 42, was kept out of public view as he pleaded not guilty to the murder of Sherry Bradley last August.
On Aug. 1, 2013, police discovered a body at at 800 Border St.. Police later identified it as belonging to Sherry Bradley, 32, of Lynn. Bradley’s death was ruled a homicide in April, police said.
Chin’s court-appointed attorney was defiant in court Monday, explaining that “four or five lines” of information have been presented to him in the case — the rest he has read in local newspapers. Calling the case “Kafkaesque,” Brian Kelley argued that his client should not be held on so little information.
Assistant Suffolk District Attorney Mark Lee said authorities received reports of alarming behavior by Chhoeut before Bradley’s body was discovered by workers cleaning a garage at the Lynn property.
