Two men who attacked an elderly man in a Providence home invasion are now charged with murder.

Prosecutors say 24-year-old Joel Valdez and 29-year-old Wilbert Richardson rushed into the apartment of Jonathan Angilly in October and attacked him.

Hearing the commotion in his tenants apartment 78-year-old Delor Dean Cabral stepped in to break up the fight. Prosecutors say the men then turned on him and broke his neck. The men then left the apartment leaving Cabral for dead. Cabral lived for a few weeks after the incident but later died from his injuries.

Both men were order held without bail in a court appearance today.
