PROVIDENCE â€” Itâ€™s very good to be Marshon Brooks these days.
To the Providence College senior, the basket must seem as large and as inviting as Narragansett Bay on a summerâ€™s day. The prodigious scoring outputs are quickly becoming a regular feature, as Saturday saw Brooks once again torch the strings with great frequency.
PAWTUCKET â€” A Providence County grand jury on Thursday handed up several indictments involving local residents, including one for a Pawtucket man accused in the beating death of his girlfriend last summer.
Armando Garcia, 31, of 468 Mineral Spring Ave., Pawtucket, is accused of killing 30-year-old Brooke Lee Verdoia last June in a violent domestic disturbance at her house at 17 Rufus St. in Pawtucket. Verdoia's two-year-old child was asleep in the house at the time of the incident.
