Prostitute Had Visited Victim

WOONSOCKET, R.I. -- Prosecutors plan to charge a Providence with murder for fatally attacking a 71-year-old man shortly after the victim received a visit from a prostitute he frequented.

The Providence Journal reported that 54-year-old Santiago Pena accompanied the prostitute to Ivon Dufresne home and robbed the elderly man.

Dufresne identified the Pena as the assailant who stole $50 from his wallet and ripped two gold chains off his neck last weekend.
The victim was taken to the Landmark Medical Center, but was found dead in his Rutland Street apartment Tuesday, a day after he was released from the hospital. A medical examiner determined the cause of death to be homicide.

The woman told police Pena had used the stolen cash to buy crack cocaine. The suspect will be arraigned Monday.
