The 22-year-old Quincy woman charged with murder in the killing of a 24-year-old Quincy man was held without bail at her arraignment.
Prosecutors say the defendant and the victim did not know each other prior to the fatal stabbing the night of Sept. 11 inside a liquor store parking lot in Wollaston.
Alyssa Dellamano pleaded not guilty during her arraignment on a charge of murder Wednesday in Quincy District Court. Her attorney did not request bail during the court appearance. Dellamano’s bail on open larceny case was also revoked during her appearance.
Dellamano is due back in court Oct. 19 for a probable cause hearing.
Assistant District Attorney Carolyn Hely said Dellamano was in the liquor store parking lot with a group of friends the night of Sept. 11 when Cameron Nohmy, age 24, and friends pulled into the lot; Nohmy was in the rear of the pickup truck.
Hely said surveillance footage shows Nohmy leaving the pickup and someone walking up to him and stabbing him several times. Nohmy then returned to the truck, Hely said, and his friends called police after he became unresponsive.
Nohmy, a Milton High School graduate and member of Laborers Local 22, was rushed to Boston Medical Center, where he died.
Hely said the footage shows Dellamano entering an SUV with another person and driving away. Hely said Dellamano’s face is clearly visible in a surveillance image from the Wollaston MBTA station and two of the defendant’s friends identified her to investigators.
Dellamano’s attorney, Thomas Iovieno, had asked that his client be arraigned behind closed doors, but Judge Diane Moriarty denied the request.
Following the arraignment, Iovieno said there would be “plenty of time to figure out what happened and who did this,” and also sent his thoughts and prayers to the victim and his family.
A second woman, 24-year-old Samantha Perrier of Dedham, was arraigned on charges of misleading the investigation into Nohmy’s death Wednesday. She pleaded not guilty and was held on $10,000 bail.
Perrier is also due back in court on Oct. 19.
Hely said Perrier was not in the parking lot the night of the stabbing. Perrier, she said, drove Dellamano around the state during the three days after the stabbing but told investigators she had not seen the defendant. Perrier later called investigators and said she lied, Hely stated; Dellamano and Perrier were found together Wednesday morning when they were arrested.
Gov. Charlie Baker, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito, Senate President Karen Spilka and House Speaker Robert DeLeo on Tuesday announced an extension of administrative tax relief measures for local businesses that have been impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, especially in the restaurant and hospitality sectors.
This includes the extension of the deferral of regular sales tax, meals tax, and room occupancy taxes for small businesses due from March 2020 through April 2021, so that they will instead be due in May 2021. Businesses that collected less than $150,000 in regular sales plus meals taxes in the twelve month period ending Feb. 29, 2020 will be eligible for relief for sales and meals taxes, and businesses that collected less than $150,000 in room occupancy taxes in the twelve month period ending Feb. 29, 2020 will be eligible for relief with respect to room occupancy taxes. For these small businesses, no penalties or interest will accrue during this extension period.
“Our Administration is committed to supporting local businesses and Main Street economies recovering from the impact of COVID-19, and we’re glad to work with our legislative colleagues on this additional measure to provide administrative tax relief,” said Baker. “Extending the tax relief measures we put into place earlier this year will help support companies across Massachusetts including small businesses in the restaurant and hospitality industries.”
“Providing this tax relief is an important step to support local businesses throughout Massachusetts and we are glad to work with our legislative colleagues on this important issue,” said Polito. “This extension allows certain local companies to defer remitting regular sales tax, meals tax, and room occupancy taxes, an important tax relief measure for businesses that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
For businesses with meals tax and room occupancy tax obligations that do not otherwise qualify for this relief, late-file and late-pay penalties will be waived during this period.
“The Senate is committed to further assisting our restaurant and hospitality industries hit hard by COVID-19,” said Spilka. “As we continue to safely reopen and recover, we will work with our partners in the Administration and the House to mitigate the economic distress felt by local businesses brought on by the unprecedented public health crisis.”
“As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to affect our economy, the House is proud of its ongoing efforts to reinforce restaurants, such as its passage of a restaurant recovery package thanks to the work of Chair Michlewitz and the membership,” said DeLeo. “We support the deferral of tax collections as it will provide a clear business pathway, especially to our restaurant and hospitality industries.”
The Department of Revenue will issue emergency regulations and a Technical Information Release to implement these administrative relief measures.

The MBTA announcs that it has filed the Environmental Notification Form (ENF) to the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) Office for the Quincy Bus Maintenance Facility.
This project will replace the existing bus maintenance facility on Hancock Street in Quincy, which is the oldest bus facility in the system and lacks the technology and space to accommodate new buses. The old facility will be replaced with a new facility at 599 Thomas Burgin Parkway that is being designed to house a larger, more modern fleet, improving operational efficiency and allowing for more potential service in the future.
MEPA seeks public comment as part of the review process with the ENF available online here. All written comments must be received by Tuesday, September 29. Participants can submit their comments through the MEPA Public Comment Portal or email comments to MEPA@mass.gov. EEA# 16267 and the project name (Quincy Bus Maintenance Facility) should be included in the subject line.
On Monday, September 21, at 10 a.m., the MEPA office will hold a virtual public meeting via Zoom to describe the proposed project, potential impacts and mitigation, and answer clarifying questions. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the environmental issues and impacts, and will be guided on how to officially submit comments for the record through the MEPA Public Comment Portal or via MEPA@mass.gov.
