NORTH ADAMS, Mass. (WWLP) - A North Adams man will be arraigned Monday, in connection with the death of 84 year-old Ellen DePaoli, also of North Adams.
Last Tuesday night, police found the woman dead inside her Walker Street home. For several days police were searching for a suspect and DePaoli's missing 2005 blue Ford Taurus. On Friday, Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless said 41 year-old David Delratez was arrested in Bennington, Vermont--which is where police found the victim's car.
Delratez is scheduled to appear before a judge in Northern Berkshire District Court in North Adams Monday morning, on murder and car theft charges. He is currently being held without bail.
