PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A 19-year-old from Central Falls has been indicted on a murder charge in the 2013 death of a 48-year-old man following an assault.
Police said Tuesday that a grand jury indicted Devan Auclair last week.
Authorities say Auclair assaulted Simon Hernandez in the area of Lincoln Avenue and Acorn Street on New Year's Eve in 2012. They said he was conscious but incoherent when police arrived but died at a hospital a little over a week later of complications from his injuries.
Police say Auclair is currently serving a 2½ year sentence for first-degree robbery. He was arrested on that charge nine days after Hernandez died.
Auclair is expected to be arraigned in Providence Superior Court on the murder charge on Aug. 27.
