DANVILLE, N.H. — A 37-year-old man faces an initial court hearing Monday in the stabbing death of a 51-year-old woman in the southeastern New Hampshire town of Danville.

Richard Moore faces a second-degree murder charge in the Sept. 2 death of Jo-Anne Boucher. He was arrested late Friday.

New Hampshire Assistant Attorney General Geoff Ward says he can’t comment on an investigation that is continuing. But television station WMUR (http://bit.ly/2cgtN2x ) cites neighbors as saying Moore had been living with Boucher.

Moore also is on the New Hampshire sex offender registry, which has him living at the same address as the victim. He has a 1998 conviction for felonious sexual assault.

It could not be determined Sunday if Moore has retained a lawyer.
