PAWTUCKET â Despite its modern design and state-of-the-art amenities, the city's animal shelter is finding itself in the doghouse when it comes to heating and electrical costs.
WOONSOCKET â Jury selection is expected to begin today in the Superior Court trial of a man accused of repeatedly stabbing his girlfriend to death in their Park Square apartment in March 2009.
But the victimâs mother, Jo-Ann Boyer of Pawtucket, said she is still hopeful that accused killer David P. Leite will cop a plea and spare family members the trauma of a trial.
âWeâd like to have some closure after all this time,â said Boyer. âBut none of us is looking forward to having to live through all this again.â
