    Man Charged With Murder in Death of Worcester Firefighter

    A Massachusetts man has been charged with murder in the December 2018 death of Worcester firefighter Christopher Roy.

    The Massachusetts man charged with setting a fire that resulted in the death of a firefighter has been granted the opportunity to be released on bail while awaiting trial.

    The Telegram & Gazette reports that a judge this week set bail for 22-year-old Momoh Kamara at $500,000. The West Boylston man has been held without bail since pleading not guilty last month to murder, arson and other charges in the Dec. 9 death of Worcester firefighter Christopher Roy.

    Authorities say Kamara set the fire in a Worcester apartment building where he was once a tenant over a dispute with his former roommates.

    Kamara's attorney argued for $5,000 bail, saying his client is not a flight risk, has a history of mental illness and the prosecution's case is largely circumstantial.
