WOONSOCKET, S.D. (AP) - Bond has been set at $350,000 for a Woonsocket man accused of killing a woman.

Thirty-three-year-old Matthew Novak is charged with second-degree murder in the Wednesday death of 25-year-old Jennifer Gibson. KOKK radio reports that he appeared in court on Thursday and requested a court-appointed attorney to represent him.

Authorities arrested Novak at a home on Wednesday after the incident that prompted authorities to lock down a nearby school.

Few details of the killing have been released as the investigation continues.

The Daily Republic reports that Novak is due back in court Sept. 13.
