The arraignment for William Camuti, the former Sudbury resident facing an attempted murder charge of Stephen Rakes, has been delayed, the Middlesex District Attorney's office announced today.
Camuti was scheduled to be arraigned on Oct. 16 at Middlesex Superior Court in Woburn.
The District Attorney's office said the delay was due to a medical reason, but did not provide specifics.
A new date has not been determined.
Camuti, 69, was indicted on Oct. 3 by a Middlesex Grand Jury on charges of attempted murder, misleading police, and unlawful disposition of human remains in the death of Steven Rakes, a witness in the Whitey Bulger trial.
The body of Rakes, 59, was discovered at 1:30 p.m. on July 17 in a wooded area off Mill Street in Lincoln.
Since his arrest, Camuti has been evicted from his apartment at the Musketahquid Village on Hudson Road, Sudbury Police Chief Scott Nix said.
