PROVIDENCE – More than two months after her death, Emmanuel “Manny” Algaria of Woonsocket was charged in District Court Monday with the murder of his girlfriend, Catherine Salvi.

Algaria, 22, had been facing felony assault charges after attacking Salvi in their apartment at 316 Manville Road on Dec. 13. State prosecutors withdrew that charge as they lodged a new count of murder against Algaria during a brief hearing before Magistrate Joseph Ippolito.

The mother of Algaria’s 2-year-old boy, Salvi, 24, lay in a coma at Rhode Island Hospital for about three weeks after Algaria attacked her. She finally died at Rhode Island Hospital on Jan. 5, the state’s first domestic homicide of 2014.
