WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A Worcester man has pleaded not guilty after being charged with murder in the death of a woman whose body was found in a burning car last year.

The Worcester District Attorney’s office says 39-year-old Donovan Goparian was ordered held without bail following his arraignment Thursday in Central District Court.

Prosecutors say the victim, 35-year-old Marie Martin of Webster, was shot to death. Her body was found Nov. 4 in the burning car on Swan Avenue in Worcester.

Goparian had previously been charged with witness intimidation in connection with the investigation of Martin’s death.

A second Worcester man, Thomas Hogan, earlier pleaded not guilty to misleading investigators in the case.
