Suspects indicted on new charges in Warwick murder

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A statewide Grand Jury has indicted four men in connection with a brutal attack that left a Warwick man dead and his uncle seriously hurt.

Each of the following suspects has been charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, assault with intent to commit murder, and conspiracy to commit assault with the intent to commit murder:

  • Jared Rogers (age 20)
    149 Haswell Street
    Warwick, RI
  • Andrew Soben (age 19)
    55 Cowesett Avenue
    West Warwick, RI
  • Josue Morillo (age 19)
    71 Glenham Street
    Providence, RI
  • Jake Cabral (age 19)
    27 Potomac Road
    Warwick, RI

Police were called on March 26 to 149 Haswill Street around 5:30 a.m with reports of a double stabbing that left one dead and another injured. The two victims were identified as Michael Rogers, Jared Rogers’ nephew, and David Rogers, Rogers’ brother. Michael, 19, was killed and David, 30, was injured.

The three men all lived in the 149 Haswill Street house together.

Hours before the murder, police said officers took Jared Rogers to a local detox center around 2 a.m. after police had responded to a family disturbance call at the house. Around 4:30 a.m., he was checked out by a sober adult. Warwick Police Chief Col. Stephen McCartney told Eyewitness News Jared Rogers stabbed his nephew in the chest while he slept, then went into his brother’s room and attacked him just one hour later.

The three other suspects were arrested about a week later for taking part in the murder and assault to various degrees.

Police say that all four are being held without bail and will arraigned in Kent County Superior Court on June 24, 2016.
