DePina indicted for murdering his daughter

The Providence County Grand Jury last Thursday indicted Pawtucket man Jorge DePina, 33, on one count of murder for killing his daughter, 10-year-old Aleida DePina.

DePina, previously of 48 Knowles St., is accused of abusing his daughter so much that she died on July 3.

DePina is scheduled to be arraigned in Providence County Superior Court on Jan. 22.

The Pawtucket Police Department conducted the investigation of DePina.

Fire destroys home

A home at 34 Utton Ave. was destroyed by fire early last Saturday. No injuries were reported in what was believed to start as a chimney fire, according to fire officials, who are investigating the exact cause. Severe cold weather hindered the response to the fire. Photographers at the scene said the air was so cold that water was nearly freezing as it came out of the hose.
