Edwin Alemany, 29, was indicted on 20 counts, including first-degree murder, kidnapping, armed carjacking and a slew of other robbery and assault-related charges — all in connection with July 23 stabbing death of Lord, according to a statement from Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley.

“The homicide of Amy Lord was savage and brutal," Conley said. "The level of violence visited upon her shocked the City of Boston and even hardened police and prosecutors with decades of experience.

"But it was not the beginning or the end of Edwin Alemany’s violent spree," Conley added.

Alemany is also charged with attempted murder, unarmed robbery and assault and battery for an attack on a 20-year-old woman last year. That assault spurred public outrage at the Boston Police's investigation and led to the demotion of the detective who handled the case.

Alemany is also accused of assaulting two other women this year in separate incidences that occurred just hours before and after he allegedly murdered Lord.

He remains in custody pending an arraignment next month.
