SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Several members of the victim’s family were in the courtroom as the suspect in Springfield’s first homicide of 2014 was arraigned late Tuesday morning.

Frederick Pinney, 45, of Springfield was ordered held without bail on a charge of murder for the death of 29 year-old Tayclair Moore.

Moore’s body was found March 23 inside a home on Agnes Street. Police Sgt. John Delaney says that investigators initially did not see any signs of trauma, but autopsy results revealed that Moore had been strangled.

Pinney, who Delaney says had been dating Moore, was arrested after what police called a “thorough investigation.”

Pinney is due back in court on April 30.
