PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The young man accused of a gruesome murder returned to court Wednesday following a grand jury indictment.
David Deleon, 20, is accused of shooting and killing a man he knew, Dakota Gosselin, 21, back in November. Deleon is also accused of dismembering the body and setting the remains on fire to dispose of it in Lincoln.
Providence Police had been called to a Gordon Avenue address back on Nov. 20, 2016, to investigate reports of gunshots, and found a bloody crime scene, but no victim.
Later that day, firefighters came upon Gosselin’s remains while battling a brush fire on Lincoln Meadows Drive in Lincoln.
