The suspect, Jeffery Yao, 23, of Winchester, approached the woman and stabbed her multiple times with a 10-inch hunting knife at a library reading room table, Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan said at a news conference.

The man, who has been identified as Jeffrey Yao of Winchester, also stabbed a 77-year-old man after he attempted to save the woman.

It was a huge surprise that Arizona did not also sit Ayton on Saturday night given the severity of the allegations against him. Bilas also demanded Arizona put Miller on administrative leave and bench Ayton until the matter can be investigated fully.

Police arrested Yao at the library.

One neighbour, a father of two young children who asked the newspaper not to use his name, said Yao had tried to "smash our door down" in a 3am incident a year ago. He will be arraigned in Woburn District Court Monday on murder and assault with intent to murder charges.

It wasn't clear if Yao knew the woman, but the suspect was "known to police", Ryan said.

The library's director, Ann Wirtanen, announced in a statement posted on Facebook that the library would be closed "until at least Tuesday".
