N.H. woman arrested in Revere


REVERE, Mass. (AP) – A New Hampshire woman wanted for allegedly killing a 24-year-old man and burning his body was arrested Sunday in Revere.

Acting on a tip from the public, Sheila LaBarre, 47, of Epping, N.H. was arrested at the Northgate Shopping Center without incident, Revere Police Lt. Michael McLaughlin said.

She was charged with being a fugitive from justice and possession of marijuana.

LaBarre is wanted in New Hampshire on a warrant for first-degree murder in connection with the death of Kenneth Countie, who recently moved to New Hampshire from Wilmington, and had been living with LaBarre for several weeks.

Countie was last seen in Epping on March 17 and he was reported missing March 23.

Officials say LaBarre killed Countie around March 21 in Epping, then incinerated his body.

LaBarre is scheduled to arraigned in Chelsea District Court today.
