Vermont State Police say a woman who was found dead in a car in Proctor was strangled, and they’ve charged a 28-year-old man with 2nd degree murder.
Shawn Laplant of Rutland City was arrested in connection with the death of 44-year-old Alicia Harrington, whose body was found March 6 after she had been reported missing. The investigation shut down a more than 2 mile stretch of Florence Road for nearly 20 hours.
Laplant was being held without bail at Marble Valley Correctional Center in Rutland. He was scheduled to be arraigned Friday afternoon. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
