PROVIDENCE, R.I.—A Cranston man has been indicted on charges he killed his girlfriend, whose body was found in her burning apartment in June.
State prosecutors said Friday that a grand jury indicted 35-year-old Matthew Komrowski on murder and other charges. Investigators say Komrowski killed his girlfriend Shirley Donnelly on June 9.
