A Massachusetts man has been charged with first degree murder after the stabbing death of a woman in Carlisle early Thursday morning, according to court documents.

Sean Michael Roberts, 29, of Gloucester, Massachusetts, was charged with criminal homicide-murder in the first degree, stemming from the incident at 3:21 a.m. Thursday.

Police said Roberts called 911 dispatch and said he’d just “murdered” a woman and stabbed her in the neck, according to the affidavit of probable cause.

Carlisle Police did not release the identity of the victim, though Fox43 reported that the victim was Jodi Sivik.

The affidavit said police arriving at the 100 block of East High Street found a woman near the front entrance of the residence with no signs of life.

Roberts surrendered to officers upon their arrival. He was arraigned Thursday morning, where Magisterial District Judge Jonathan Birbeck denied bail with the reason that Roberts was a “danger to the community,” according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 28.
