Police discovered Brescia’s decomposing body on February 25 after a well-being check from neighbors who noticed a strong odor.

Brescia, who struggled with addiction and homelessness, became a painter and was profiled in the Boston Globe last January. His pieces of art sometimes sold for over $1,000.

Grossack is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Berkshire District Court.
