RI man faces murder charge in Swansea killing

Posted: Updated:

A grand jury indicted a Rhode Island man in the killing of a Swansea woman, the Bristol County district attorney said Monday.

David Sousa, 54, of Warren, is accused of strangling Lisa Mello to death in her home at 500 Ocean Grove Avenue on Nov. 24, 2012.

Prosecutors said Sousa was Mello's boyfriend.

Sousa is being held in Rhode Island on a probation violation. An arraignment on the murder indictment is pending.

District Attorney Sam Sutter said with Sousa's indictment, charges were brought in every homicide last year in Bristol County.
