Finally Some Answers in Murder of Deerfield Beach Man

A Massachusetts television station, WPRI, is reporting that Aaron Morin of Assonet, Massachusetts, has been arrested and charged with the November 3 murder of Chad Fleming, 31.

The Bristol County district attorney says that the case is still active, setting Morin's pretrial hearing for December 8. The Deerfield Beach man's corpse was dropped off at a local hospital hours after his death by Nelson Melo, who is being held on $50,000 cash bond for witness intimidation in connection with the case. The Standard-Times has more details about those charges. It appears they're related to Melo's allegedly having told differing accounts about the way Fleming died.
