The stepfather of 11 year-old Celina Cass has been charged with 2nd-degree murder in her 2011 death. 

Cass was reported missing in July of 2011.  Nearly a week later her body was found in the Connecticut River not far from her home in Stewartstown.  Her stepfather, Wendell Noyes, is thought to have been one of the last people to see Cass before she disappeared from her home. 

The Attorney General’s office says the investigation into Cass’s murder has remained active for the past five years. Noyes is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday in Berlin.
