WOONSOCKET â€“ A Superior Court judge has granted a new trial to a city man who was paralyzed after diving into the now-defunct â€śSocial Oceanâ€ť in 2008.
Associate Justice Susan McGuirl threw out a 2011 jury verdict absolving the state of liability in causing Brett Royâ€™s injuries, saying she could not agree with the decision.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Five men and a juvenile male have been arrested in connection with two home invasions â€“ one in Burrillville and one on Park Avenue â€“ in which marijuana was stolen this month. An arrest warrant has also been obtained for a sixth man.
In custody are Kyeme Gallagher, 22, of 20 Bell St.; Charles Welch, 23, of 97 Roberts St.; Cyril Delgado, 19, of 97 Roberts St.; Andrew Perry, 21, of 90 Girard Ave., Newport; and Randy Santana, 21, of 482 Park Ave., and a 17-year-old male from the city.
