COVENTRY, R.I. -

A former resident of an assisted living center in Rhode Island has been indicted on a charge of murder after allegedly bludgeoning another resident to death.

Attorney General Peter Kilmartin announced Monday that a statewide Grand Jury indicted Domenic Petrarca on a single count of murder.

The 55-year-old is accused of killing 61-year-old Joseph Costa in October. Both men were residents of Summer Villa Assisted Living Facility in Coventry.

Petrarca has been in custody since his arrest in October. Police have said the alleged assault was captured on video surveillance.

An arraignment on the charge has not been scheduled.
