Police arrest a Lynn man in connection with the death of his girlfriend, whose body was found in a Saugus marsh along Route 107

  Less than a week after police arrested a Saugus woman for murdering a man in his Essex Landing apartment on Route 1, police have charged the boyfriend in connection with the death of the Woburn woman whose body was discovered on Tuesday (Dec. 21) in the marsh area along Route 107.

  On Wednesday (Dec. 22) afternoon, officers of the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section arrested Bruce Maiben, 44, of Lynn, on multiple charges that arose out of the death of Sherell Pringle, 40, of Woburn. Pringle was reported missing by her son when she did not return home last Saturday night when she was reportedly out on a date with Maiben. He was arraigned yesterday in Lynn District Court on charges of Larceny over $1,200, Tampering with Evidence and Obstruction arising from the investigation into the death of Sherell Pringle of Woburn.

  “We have said foul play is suspected,” Essex District Attorney’s Office Director of Communications Carrie Kimball told The Saugus Advocate yesterday. Yet, at press time yesterday, no murder charges had been filed as area police and state detectives assigned to the Essex County District Attorney’s Office continued to investigate the circumstances surrounding Pringle’s death.

  State police said they located her body in a marsh area in the vicinity of 63 Salem Turnpike along the northbound side of Route 107.

  Meanwhile, Angjeliki Hodaj, 33, of Saugus, remained in jail, being held without bail since being charged last Friday (Dec. 17) with murder. Police arrested her for the Dec. 11 killing of Michael Norton in his home at 44 Collins Ave.Police and the District Attorney’s Office have released few details of that homicide.

  “No one else is charged at this time, but [the case is] still under investigation,” Kimball said.
