    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. 

    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. 

    Neighbors said Moore had been staying with Boucher since sometime around March but no one knew there were problems until her death.
