An autopsy revealed Toupin died from sharp force trauma to the neck. Her death was ruled a homicide.

Abraham was arraigned Monday as a fugitive from justice in Lowell District Court. He waived extradition back to New Hampshire, where he will be held without bail.

The Nashua man is expected to be arraigned Tuesday on the murder charge in New Hampshire.
