Man charged with murder for fatal fire in Dec.

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A 35-year-old man who was charged earlier with stealing a woman's car and misleading police after she died in a December fire is now charged with murder.

Amador Roman was indicted Friday by a Worcester County grand jury for the death of 53-year-old Diane Lamarche-Leader. Her body was discovered by firefighters who responded to a blaze at her Rutland home on Dec. 6.

A spokesman for the Worcester County district attorney's office says the causes of her death and the fire are under investigation.

Authorities say Lamarche-Leader was a nurse who assisted people with substance abuse problems and Roman, who was homeless, had been staying with her.

Twenty-one-year-old Angel Santiago of Worcester has been charged as an accessory after the fact.

The two men will be arraigned in Worcester at a later date.
