Man charged in death of woman near Auburn Mall

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, Mass. (WHDH) - A 27-year-old Worcester man has been charged with the murder of the woman found in the Auburn Mall garage Tuesday afternoon.

Officials said that Vu Van Ngo knew the woman well and carpooled with her to work.

Police towed a car away from the crime scene, where they also found a .22 caliber shell casing. Police said the victim's daughter later identified Ngo as the man who gives her mother a ride to work every day.

Police found blood in Ngo's car and a .22 caliber weapon in the basement of his home.

A witness also saw Ngo's car leaving the mall in a "reckless, rapid speed," Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early said.

The victim and the suspect were both temporary employees at Worcester Envelope, a company near the mall.

The 46-year-old victim was found critically injured outside of the mall. She was rushed to the hospital where she later died.

"We're waiting for the autopsy, but believe she was shot and killed," Early said.

Ngo was ordered held without bail after being arraigned on Wednesday.
