RI - Yodit Kaleab, 25, found murdered, Providence, 30 Sept 2005
Video at link:
NBC 10's Kelley McGee reported that Victor Cortez's arraignment on a murder charge was postponed Monday so a public defender could be appointed. The arraignment was rescheduled for next week.
Cortez is serving time at the Adult Correctional Institutions for first-degree armed robbery. Police said that before his arrest for that crime, he killed 25-year-old Yodit Kaleab. Investigators said they linked Cortez to Kaleab's killing through bodily fluids and physical evidence...
Kaleab's body was found in a minivan parked between the Providence train station and the State House in October. She had been reported missing about a week earlier.
