Wareham man arrested for Rose Point murder

Mar 28, 2020

Danny Sherman, 54, of Wareham, has been arrested for the murder of a woman found dead yesterday in her Rose Point home.

At about 8:15 a.m. yesterday, March 27,  Wareham police were called to a waterway by Route 6 in Wareham for a reported distressed man in a canoe. The man, later identified as Sherman, was taken to Tobey Hospital for treatment of what were described as “non-life-threatening injuries.”

Shortly thereafter, Wareham and Marion Police cruisers and an ambulance pulled into Woodbridge Avenue, a quiet dirt road in Rose Point, a cluster of once primarily seasonal homes on a point of land jutting into the Weweantic River just north of Route 6.

According to the district attorney’s office, officers “found a 57-year-old female bleeding and unresponsive” at 3 Woodbridge Ave. She was pronounced dead at the scene, and State Police were called in to help with the investigation.

Police have determined that Sherman lived with the woman in the Woodbridge Avenue home, and allege that he stabbed her.

The victim’s name is not being released at this time. 

The home is listed by the assessor’s office as being owned by a Mardiette Deboyes.

Sherman was arrested at 12:55 p.m. on Friday, and will be arraigned on Monday in Wareham District Court on one count of murder.
