WORCESTER – A Worcester man was indicted on a murder charge in the death of a man whose body was found in Paxton in March, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early, Jr.
A Worcester County Grand Jury handed up an indictment yesterday against Christopher Fuller, 30, for one count of murder in the death of Ernest A. Appiah, 29, of Worcester.
Fuller was arrested at his home in July and charged in East Brookfield District Court. He has been held without bail since his district court arraignment.
Appiah was discovered deceased just before 7 a.m. on March 5 off of Asnebumskit Road in Paxton after a resident called 911 to report a body about 25 feet into the wooded area off the road. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner later ruled Appiah’s death a homicide. Appiah had been shot in the torso.
The indictment moves the case to Worcester Superior Court. Fuller will be arraigned on Jan. 5, 2023.
