BOSTON — The former medical student accused of killing a 25-year-old masseuse he met through Craigslist has been 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 Las Vegas woman at the Westin Copley Place hotel.
The 23-year-old upstate New York native who had been living in Quincy is being held without bail after pleading not guilty in district court.
