NASHUA, N.H. — A man has been charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of a man in Nashua, the New Hampshire attorney general’s office said Tuesday.
Police found Greek-American Evangelos Ioannou, 32, in a hallway in a residential building suffering from multiple stab wounds early Tuesday. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
An arraignment was scheduled Wednesday for Joshua Shea, 31, in Hillsborough County Superior Court in Nashua. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death.
According to a statement from state Attorney General John M. Formella’s office, Shea was arrested and “charged with second-degree murder for recklessly causing Mr. Ioannou’s death with extreme indifference to the value of human life by repeatedly stabbing and/or slicing Mr. Ioannou with a knife. An arraignment is expected to be scheduled by the Hillsborough County Superior Court – Southern District for tomorrow, June 8, 2022,” the Boston Globe reported.
Officials pointed out that “the murder remains under investigation,” the Globe reported.
“Anyone who interacted with Mr. Shea on Monday June 6, or Tuesday June 7, 2022, is encouraged to contact the Nashua Police Department at 603-594-3500 or the Nashua Police Crime Line at 603-589-1665,” the statement continued, though it did not “provide information on a possible motive,” the Globe reported.
