• Chism indicted on another rape charge


    DANVERS, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – Phillip Chism, 15, of Danvers was charged with an additional count of aggravated rape Friday in connection with the October murder of his math teacher, Colleen Ritzer.

    The Essex County District Attorney's Office re-called the Grand Jury to share additional evidence, which led to the extra charge against Chism. The indictment alleges that Chism forced sexual intercourse with Ritzer, officials say.

    Chism was indicted in November for the murder, aggravated rape and armed robbery and was arraigned on the charges in December. He is being held without bail and is due next in court on Jan. 30. He will most likely be arraigned on the new charge, but the court date has not been scheduled yet.
