Attleboro woman charged in connection with mall murder, granted bail, pleads not guilty



The Attleboro woman accused of being an accessory-after-the-fact of the murder of Dijoun Beasley at the South Shore Plaza last weekend entered a plea of not guilty at her Quincy District Court arraignment Friday morning, according to Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey.

“Assistant District Attorney Anne Yas asked Judge Maurice Flynn to impose $200,000 cash bail on Samantha Schwartz, and to have her subject to GPS monitoring if she were to post bail,” said District Attorney Morrissey. “The judge imposed a $20,000 cash bail and declined to impose electronic monitoring.”

ADA Yas had argued for higher bail by citing Schwartz’s actions in the five days following the shooting, during which she did not go home and changed location repeatedly, and prior history of defaulting on court dates.

“Judge Flynn ordered that she return to court February 18 for a probable cause hearing,” Morrissey said.

The alleged shooter Julius Hammond-Desir remains at-large.

The matter remains under active investigation by Braintree and Massachusetts State Police. Anyone with information relative to the incident should call Braintree Police Detectives at 781-794-8620, contact Mass State Police Detectives781-830-4990 or e-mail
