BOSTON (AP) _ Boston police say they have a man in custody in connection with the death last week in a luxury hotel of a woman who advertised massage services on Craigslist.

Police spokeswoman Elaine Driscoll did not immediately provide any other information about the man Monday. Suffolk District Attorney spokesman Jake Wark said he did not know of any charges filed in the case. Julissa Brisman of New York City was found dead Tuesday at the Boston Marriott Copley Place.

The man also is being held in connection with the robbery last week of a woman at the Westin Copley Hotel. Authorities believe Brisman's death also may be connected to the attempted robbery Thursday in Warwick, R.I., of an exotic dancer by a man responding to an ad she had posted on Craigslist.
