A source confirmed that an arrest has been made in the killing of Google employee Vanessa Marcotte. There were also signs that she had struggled with her attacker.
Police have charged 31-year-old Angelo Colon-Ortiz, of Worcester, with several counts of aggravated assault.
She had gone out for a jog in August of 2016 when she was visiting her family in Princeton, but never returned. He is reportedly being held at Massachusetts State Police barracks in Millbury on $1 million bail.

Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early said in February that investigators used highly-specialized DNA technology to create a profile of the person of interest. DNA from a possible suspect was obtained during Marcotte's autopsy, and on Friday, state police learned of a DNA match. There is evidence he was in the Princeton area at the time of the murder, but Early declined to go into details.
Her body was found at about 8 p.m.
According to WCVB, a source close to the investigation said Marcotte was found without her clothes and had burns on her head, feet, and hands. Marcotte, who worked as an account manager for Google in NY, had gone out to run several hours earlier.
