Teen to Be Tried as Adult in Mother's Boyfriend's Death

The teen allegedly shot and killed his mother's boyfriend

The Rhode Island Attorney general says a 17-year-old boy will be tried as an adult in the death of a man whose burning body was found in a wooded area in Massachusetts.

WJAR has identified the teen as Xavier Vidot who is facing charges for murder, concealing a felony and use of a firearm in a crime of violence.

Police say the boy shot 24-year-old Valdez Loiseau in Cranston after the man got into an altercation with the boy's mother, who he was seeing at the time. Loiseau's burned body was found by a police officer in Attleboro, Massachusetts July 18.

The teen's mother is facing charges for helping transport the body.
