MERIDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A Meriden man accused of strangling and attacking his ex-fiance faced a judge on Monday.
Jason Watson has not been charged with murder, but he has been described by a judge as the main suspect in the murder case of Perrie Mason.
The Meriden mother disappeared back in August. The day before, her sister says there were two 911 calls from her phone, but police have not described the calls or said an officer responded to check them out.
Investigators then discovered her remains near where Watson worked three days later. He’s behind bars right now for strangulation, assault, and unlawful restraint from an incident that happened days before she disappeared.
These charges stemmed from pictures and evidence found on Mason’s phone.
Upon conclusion of the hearing, the case was continued to January 13 and was transferred to New Haven.
Watson’s charges have not been increased.
