AG: Man Arrested in Stabbing Death of Danville, New Hampshire Woman

Richard Moore facing one count of second-degree murder

The New Hampshire Attorney General's Office said Saturday that an arrest has been made in the murder of a Danville woman earlier in the week.

Authorities said 51-year-old Jo-Anne Boucher was stabbed multiple times. Her body was found Monday night inside her Caramel Drive home.

The attorney general's office said Richard Moore, 37, of Danville, has been arrested in connection with Boucher's death.

According to records necn found on the New Hampshire Registration of Criminal Offenders, Moore is a registered sex offender and was previously convicted for an assault on someone under the age of 13.

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

"We knew there was a registered offender there so we thought maybe it had something to do with him and turns out that it did," said an unidentified neighbor.

The attorney general's office would not comment on the connection between Moore and Boucher.

Moore is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday on one count of second-degree murder.
