WORCESTER - A local man has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the killing of a woman in Worcester in 2018, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joe Early Jr.
Joseph Dalrymple, 37, of Shrewsbury, was sentenced to 18 to 20 years in prison for the death of Marlene Bleau, 38. Dalrymple pleaded guilty in Worcester Superior Court on Thursday.
Bleau was discovered on July 28, 2018, face-down in the water in a section of Lake Quinsigamond, in the area of Lake Avenue.
The medical examiner determined the cause of death as mechanical asphyxia. An investigation by Worcester police detectives determined that Dalrymple was the last person seen with Bleau the night before her body was discovered.
