2 indicted on murder charges in Mass. teen's death
WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) -- Two Rhode Island residents have been indicted on murder charges in the death of a 19-year-old Worcester man who went missing in March.
The Worcester District Attorney's office announced the indictments Friday of 22-year-old Lara Cori and 19-year-old James Howze of Providence.
The body of Joseph Webster was found in April in a storage container near the couple's apartment in Providence. He had last been seen at a Northborough, Mass., motel, where prosecutors say Cori and Howze attacked him and stole his car.
Cori and Howze had earlier pleaded not guilty to assault and other charges. Howze's attorney then called the evidence "hearsay." Cori's attorney has said his client did not kill Webster.
