A man arrested in connection with the death of a Meriden mom appeared in court Monday and he is due in court next on Dec. 16.
Jason Watson is accused of strangling his ex-girlfriend, Perrie Mason, just days before she disappeared and has been charged with strangulation, assault, unlawful restraint and disorderly conduct.
He has been named a suspect in her disappearance.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has ruled the cause of death as homicidal violence of unknown etiology and the manner of death a homicide.
Police are still investigating and nobody has been charged with her death.
Mason was a single mom of two boys and recently moved her family to Connecticut for a fresh start.
