WORCESTER—A Vernon Street man was indicted by a Worcester County grand jury Friday in connection with the death of a 53-year-old man over the summer.
Brayan Flores, 29, of 197 Vernon St., Apt. 1, was charged with murder in Central District Court; with the indictment, the case now moves to Superior Court. First responders arriving at 12 Halmstad St. July 25 for a reported fire found the body of David Carlson in the house. Mr. Flores was initially charged with assault and battery with serious bodily injury, but after the state medical examiner determined the death was a homicide, Mr. Flores was charged with murder.
A Worcester County grand jury also indicted a Webster man Friday in connection with the death of his girlfriend in April 2017.
