Raymond Clark, a lab technician at Yale, has been charged in Le's death and is being held in lieu of $3 million bail. Clark, 24, has not entered a plea.

The body of 24-year-old Le was found inside a wall of a Yale lab building on September 12 - the day she was to be married. She had been strangled, the Connecticut medical examiner's office later said.

Clark, of Branford, Connecticut, is not a Yale student, but has worked as a lab technician at the university since 2004. He lived with his girlfriend, who also is a Yale lab technician, according to police in New Haven, Connecticut.

A Yale faculty member described Clark's job as maintaining colonies for animals used in research. The lab is in the basement of the building where Le's body was found.

A motive in Le's killing was unclear, but police said they were treating the case as workplace violence.
