Woonsocket man indicted in deaths of three women

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- A Woonsocket man accused of killing three women and discarding their remains in commercial trash bins was indicted Friday on murder charges, the attorney generalÔŅĹs office announced.

Jeffrey S. Mailhot, 34, was charged with three counts of murder in the deaths of Stacie Goulet, Christine Dumont, and Audrey Harris. The indictment also charged him with one count of assault with intent to commit murder and one count of felony assault.

The indictment was handed up by a Providence County grand jury, five months after it was given the case.

Mailhot was arrested in July on two unrelated assault charges for allegedly trying to choke two women this year. Police said those cases were the break they needed to connect Mailhot with the deaths of Goulet, Dumont and Harris, all of whom were believed to have been involved in either drugs or prostitution.

Mailhot has been held at the Adult Correctional Institutions in Cranston since his arrest.

Police have said Mailhot knew the women. Police believe the women each went willingly to MailhotÔŅĹs house, where he allegedly killed and dismembered them, then sealed the remains in trash bags and dumped them in commercial bins around town.

Goulet, 25 and a mother of two, disappeared from a local park after a fireworks display on July 3. Dumont, 42, was last seen leaving a friendÔŅĹs car on April 23. Harris, 353, vanished on Feb.  9, 2003 after telling her mother in a telephone call she would visit her that day.

Police recovered GouletÔŅĹs remains at a Johnston landfill. The other womenÔŅĹs remains have not been located.
