A Hinsdale man accused in the shooting death of his estranged girlfriend was arraigned Tuesday morning in Central Berkshire District Court on a murder charge. According to the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office, 32-year-old Michael Boulais entered a not guilty plea on a single count of murder in connection with the death of the 24 year old Kassedi Clark, also of Hinsdale.

Clark’s body was found inside a vehicle at the 53 Ashmere Drive residence of Boulais on April 13th. Judge Paul Smyth ordered that Boulais be held at the Berkshire County House of Correction without the right to bail. The defendant will be back in Court for a bind-over hearing on May 16th.

The investigation is being conducted by state troopers assigned to the District Attorney’s Office, members of the Hinsdale and Dalton Police Departments, the Berkshire County Sheriff’s Department, state troopers assigned to the Cheshire barracks, the Massachusetts State Police Crime Scene Services and Ballistics Sections and forensic scientists assigned to the State Police Crime Laboratory.
