PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A city man being held on assault charges will have murder added to the list after his 27-year-old girlfriend died late Thursday morning from injuries sustained from a brutal beathing.

Rebecca Moulton died at Berkshire Medical Center, where she was admitted Wednesday morning after being found battered in her Fourth Street apartment, according to Berkshire District Attorney David F. Capeless.

David W. Vincent III, 40, who resided with Moulton, will be arraigned Friday morning in Central Berkshire District Court on a single count of murder. He entered pleas of not guilty when he was arraigned Thursday morning in district court on single counts of assault with intent to murder and aggravated assault and battery.

Judge Frederic Rutberg ordered that he be held at the Berkshire County House of Correction on $25,000 cash or $250,000 surety bail. Bail previously set on a pending charge scheduled for trial of domestic assault and battery, also alleged to have been committed on Moulton, was ordered revoked.

Vincent reportedly has a criminal record that includes previous assaults and several restraining orders.
