Two brothers from Mattapan were charged with Massachusetts Murder Crimes Charges last week in connection with the stabbing of 15 year old Lance Hartgrove in Roxbury on July 10, 2012.
The two brothers were arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court and each are charged with Manslaughter and Assault & Battery with a Dangerous Weapon.
According to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, a fight broke out outside the Social Security Administration building in Roxbury. The victim, Lance Hartgrove, armed with a kitchen knife, reportedly went to the building after being called there by a friend. After throwing a glass bottle at a window, Hartgrove went into the building with two others and began fighting with one of the defendants, which eventually spilled outside.
