Illegal Immigrant Faces Murder Charge In Fatal Crash In Milford

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) – An alleged drunken driver police say hit a motorcyclist and dragged him beneath his truck for a quarter-mile has been indicted on a second-degree murder charge.
The Worcester district attorney announced the Friday indictment of 34-year-old Nicolas Guaman of Milford. Guaman also was indicted on other charges, including manslaughter and motor vehicle homicide, in the Aug. 20 death of 23-year-old Matthew Denice of Milford.
Police say Guaman is an illegal immigrant from Ecuador. His case has sharpened discussion of whether the state should support a federal program to identify illegal immigrant criminal suspects for deportation.
Guaman has been held on $100,000 in the case and faces arraignment Nov. 1 in Superior Court.
His attorney told the Milford Daily News he isn’t surprised by the indictments, but declined further comment.
