WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) — Three more people are facing charges in connection with the stabbing death of a Warwick teenager last weekend, with charges pending against a fourth.
Jared Rogers, 20, is already charged with the murder of his nephew, Michael Rogers, and the assault of his brother, David Rogers.
Police say hours after a dispute, Rogers stabbed his nephew several times while the 19-year-old slept, then attacked his brother.
Police Wednesday said John Ingram, 18, of Cranston, Josue Morillo, 19, of Providence and Andrew Soben, 19, of West Warwick were directly involved in the murder and assault to varying degrees and that all acted in concert with Jared Rogers.
Police said those three are being charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder. All three were ordered held on bail at their arraignments Wednesday afternoon at Kent County Court.
During the proceeding, the judge ordered the suspects to have no contact with David Rogers. None of the suspects entered a plea and prosecutors said the case will be referred to a grand jury.
As the suspects were walked out of the courtroom, the victim’s mother had an outburst of emotion.
“What is wrong with you people?” Andrea Rogers cried. “They didn’t even look at me!”
Police said they believe a fourth suspect – Jake Cabral, 19, of Warwick – assisted in the murder and assault. He’s currently being held at the ACI on unrelated issues and police said a charge of conspiracy to commit murder is pending against him.
