Craigslist killing suspect indicted by grand jury


BOSTON (AP) - The former medical student accused of killing a
25-year-old masseuse he met through Craigslist has indicted by a
grand jury.

Philip Markoff's indictment on charges of first-degree murder
and other crimes moves his case from district court to Superior
Court, where he is scheduled to be arraigned Monday. The
indictments were returned late Thursday and announced Sunday.

He was indicted for the April 14 shooting of 25-year-old Julissa
Brisman of New York, who advertised on the "exotic services"
section of Craigslist at the Boston Marriott Copley Place hotel. He
was also charged with the April 10 armed robbery of a 29-year-old
Los Vegas woman at the Westin Copley Place hotel.

The 23-year-old Sherrill native who had been living in
Quincy is being held without bail after pleading not guilty in
district court.
