Two Men Arraigned in Lowell for New Year’s Even Murder

Jameson Phoun, 20, and Sothy Voeun, 19, both of Lowell, Massachusetts, were arraigned yesterday morning in Lowell District Court on charges of Murder for allegedly shooting spraying a New Year’s Eve Party with gunfire that ended up with a young female dead.

According to the Lowell Police Department and the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office, Phoun and Voeun, allegedly kicked down the door at a Lowell apartment and began shooting into a crowd of approximately 25 partygoers.

The victim, Corinna Ouer, 20, was shot in the stomach and later succumbed to her wounds. Seven other people were also shot but have survived the attack.

According to Middlesex County prosecutors, both men initially went to the party because Phoun believed that his ex-girlfriend was there. The men, however, were both kicked out of the party but later returned with guns and began shooting. Phoun allegedly began firing from a .22 caliber rifle; while Voeun stood by the door with a rifle also in his possession.

Both men are expected to be held without bail on charges of First Degree Murder.
