WORCESTER – Two men charged in connection with a home invasion and murder last December were indicted today by a Worcester County Grand Jury, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.

Ramon Millan, 37, of Bridgeport, Conn., and Jose Crespo, 32, of Newark, N.J. were both indicted for murder, home invasion, three counts of aggravated kidnapping, arson of a dwelling and armed robbery while masked. They will be arraigned in Worcester Superior Court at a future date. Both men have been held without bail.

A third defendant in the case, Wilfredo Muniz, 31, of Bridgeport, Conn., was indicted under the intimidation of a witness statute for misleading a police investigation. He also will be arraigned at a future date in Worcester Superior Court.

The victims of the Dec. 3, 2016 home invasion at 122 Laurel St., Fitchburg were Kevin O. Cabrera, 21, his girlfriend and his girlfriend’s 7-year-old son. Mr. Cabrera was found dead in an apartment at that address where a fire had been set. The woman and her son escaped the fire. An autopsy later revealed that Mr. Cabrera died of homicidal violence with thermal injuries.
