Alleged killer found asleep inside of his car

BROCKTON, MA – A suspect was arrested who is believed to be responsible for a double stabbing in Brockton. The violent outburst resulted in one fatality. The alleged murderer was apprehended in Vermont, as stated by Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz.

The suspect in the case has been identified as 33-year-old Kevin Digregorio of Randolph. He was found asleep in a motor vehicle on a Lunenburg, Vermont, roadway.

The double stabbing incident was reported on Monday, shortly before 7 p.m., at 23 Melrose Ave. The victims included 59-year-old William Hewlett, who was rushed to Good Samaritan Hospital but was subsequently pronounced dead. The other victim, a 61-year-old male, received treatment at South Shore Hospital and was later discharged.

Following investigative procedures, law enforcement identified Digregorio as the suspect. After he was identified, the authorities issued a warrant for his arrest. With the aid of Vermont State Police and the U.S. Marshals, Digregorio was located and arrested on Wednesday.

After extradition from Vermont, Digregorio is slated for arraignment on charges of murder, among others, in Brockton District Court. The district attorney’s office noted that while investigations are still ongoing, the violent incident does not appear to have been random.
