Mass. Woman Found Strangled

MALDEN, Mass. (AP) — A 45-year-old Malden man has been ordered held without bail in the strangling of a girlfriend he lived with.

William Bryant Moseley was arraigned on a murder charge Friday, hours after police said he called 911 to say he had killed 58-year-old Cecilia Yakubu at their home in Malden. He entered a not guilty plea.

Prosecutors said Yakubu was found in a small puddle of blood with clothing wrapped around her neck. Moseley’s court-appointed lawyer did not speak to reporters outside court.

The Boston Globe reports that court records show Moseley was charged last year with punching Yakubu in an argument but the case was dismissed in January at Yakubu’s request.
