A woman's death that was being investigated as suspicious has now been deemed a homicide case in Nashua, New Hampshire, authorities said Sunday.

Attorney General John Formella first announced Friday night that a suspicious death investigation was underway at a Nashua home. He released no other details at the time, including the street where the death occurred.

On Sunday, Formella announced an arrest had been made in connection to the death of 34-year-old Julie Graichen.

Miguel Ramirez, 30, of Nashua, was taken into custody and is facing a second-degree murder charge for allegedly stabbing Graichen to death, the attorney general said.

More details were not provided, including where the fatal stabbing occurred or what authorities believe may have led up to it.

Ramirez is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Hillsborough County Superior Court. Attorney information was not immediately available.

Graichen's death was the second suspicious death investigation announced last Friday in Nashua. The attorney general earlier had announced a man's death was under investigation at a Nashua business, later saying a 19-year-old had been arrested in connection to the shooting death of another man, 53. The two cases are not connected.
