A 27-year old Chelsea man confined to a mental health facility in Revere apparently killed a 25-year old Peabody woman who was caring for him last Thursday.

Deshawn Chapell repeatedly stabbed Stephanie Moulton inside the North Suffolk Mental Health facility on Ocean Avenue.

According to Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley, he drove Moulton to Lynn and dumped her body behind  St. George’s Greek Orthodox Church on Common Street.

Lynn police discovered the woman’s bloodied and partially clad body behind the church.

Chapell was arrested in Roxbury at his mother’s home and later arraigned in Chelsea District Court last week.

He was sent to Bridgewater State Prison’s psychiatric ward to be examined as to his mental competency.
