Police charge man in connection with fatal shooting

EASTON, Mass. (AP) — Police say they’ve charged a Florida man in connection with the fatal shooting of a man originally found wounded in a wooded area of Easton.

The Bristol County District Attorney said Sunday that 47-year-old Michael Arthur Noguera, of Lehigh Acres, Florida, has been charged with accessory to murder, armed robbery and larceny in the death of Daniel Smith. Noguera was arrested in South Carolina.

Smith was found Tuesday afternoon by young boys riding their bikes. The 35-year-old died at a hospital Friday night.

The district attorney’s office says Smith was a former Easton resident who now lives in Florida.


Noguera has been charged in South Carolina as a fugitive from justice. He is scheduled to appear in court there Monday.

It is unknown if he has retained an attorney.
