Twenty-two-year-old Lara Cori of Westborough — who sometimes spells her name Corey — was held without bail after her arraignment in Worcester Superior Court on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, armed robbery, armed assault with intent to murder and car theft.

Nineteen-year-old Joseph Webster was reported missing March 14. A prosecutor said blood and a shovel were found at a Northborough motel where the suspects were seen, and Howze later tried to sell Webster’s car in Providence.
