The Fall River Superior Court Clerk’s Office has scheduled the arraignment of David Reed for Monday, December 20th at 9 am.  The defendant will be arraigned on an indictment charging him with Murder and Armed Robbery in connection to the previously unsolved March 2001 killing of Rose Marie Moniz in New Bedford.

The defendant, who is in custody, has already been arraigned in connection to the 2003 assault and robbery of Maribel Martinez-Alegria in New Bedford.  He was arraigned in October on indictments charging him with Armed Assault with Intent to Murder and Armed Robbery.  Judge Gregg Pasquale found him dangerous after a Superior Court Dangerousness Hearing was held in early November, meaning the defendant is held without bail.

Monday’s Murder arraignment will be handled by Deputy District Attorney William McCauley and Assistant District Attorney Caleb Weiner. 

District Attorrney Thomas M. Quinn III will be in attendance and will make a brief statement to the media outside the courthouse after the arraignment.
