WOONSOCKET â€” The custody battle for the man accused of murdering gas station manager David Main swerved toward uncharted legal territory yesterday as an appeals court postponed his transfer to federal authorities for arraignment on charges that carry the death penalty.
The U.S. Court of Appeals in Boston granted the motion of defense lawyers for Jason Wayne Pleau to stay his surrender to federal authorities for arraignment â€” originally set for today â€” on charges stemming from Main's robbery and shooting death on Sept. 20.
WOONSOCKET â€” An unidentified man plummeted from a fifth-floor window at the rear of 65 Main St. in Woonsocket Thursday at about 4:30 in the afternoon.
Woonsocket rescue personnel took the victim to Landmark Medical Center. The window is located at Superior Cheers All Stars gymnasium.
