ORANGE, Mass. — A Massachusetts man charged with killing a woman in her home in the rural town of Wendell, then shooting a co-worker at a Chicopee trucking company, has pleaded not guilty to murder and assault charges.
Lewis Starkey III was ordered held without right to bail Monday in Orange District Court. The 53-year-old man was apprehended on Sunday after several days on the run.
Prosecutors say he fatally shot 48-year-old Amanda Glover in front of her adult son in her home last Wednesday. They say the son escaped into the woods.
Authorities say Starkey then drove to the trucking company where he worked about an hour away and shot at a co-worker. That man was slightly injured by flying glass shards.
It’s unclear whether Starkey has been assigned a public defender.
