WARWICK, R.I. (WLNE) — A decision is expected Friday in the trial of a man accused of brutally murdering a 66-year-old man nearly a decade ago in Warwick.

Police said that Michael Soares, who’s from Pawtucket, killed John “Jack” Fay back in May 2013 at Warwick City Park.

Fay was going for a morning run in the park when he was violently murdered with a sledgehammer, police said. His body was found in a trash can.

Soares was arrested in February 2019 and charged with one count of murder.

This is a bench trial, so the judge is expected to give his verdict Friday.
