COPY-Hearing set for man in Boston woman's killing

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - A status conference is scheduled in court this week for a man charged with kidnapping, robbing and killing a Boston woman and assaulting three others.

Edwin Alemany is accused of kidnapping 24-year-old Amy Lord from outside her South Boston apartment, then robbing and stabbing her. He also is accused of attacking three other women.

Alemany has pleaded not guilty and is being held at a state psychiatric facility. Alemany's lawyer says Alemany has mental health issues and plans to use an insanity defense.

Prosecutors say Lord, a Wilbraham native, was beaten, then forced to use her own SUV to drive to several ATMs and withdraw money. She was then forced to drive to Stony Brook Reservation, where she was fatally stabbed.

A hearing is scheduled Thursday in Suffolk Superior Court.
