WORCESTER – A 34-year-old man was indicted on a murder charge after 29-year-old Ryan C. Anderson was found dead inside his Millbury home in October, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.
A Worcester County Grand Jury today handed up a murder charge against Kevin Donnellan, 34, of Auburn.
Anderson was found dead inside his home at 303 Millbury Ave. on Oct. 1 after Donnellan called 911. Anderson had significant knife wounds and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Police took Donnellan into custody, and he was arraigned on Oct. 3 on the charges of assault with intent to murder, aggravated assault and battery causing serious bodily injury, and assault and battery on a household/family member. He has been held without bail since his arraignment.
Detectives from the Millbury Police Department and State Police Detectives assigned to the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office are investigating. State Police Crime Scene Services also assisted in the investigation.
The indictment moves Donnellan’s case to Worcester Superior Court where he will be arraigned at a later date.
