Attorney General Peter F. Neronha announced that Nathan Spardello (age 30), of Providence, pleaded guilty yesterday to counts of second-degree murder, domestic breaking and entering, domestic assault and battery, assault with a dangerous weapon, larceny under $1,500, domestic malicious damage, trespassing, and shoplifting. Superior Court Justice Joseph A. Montalbano sentenced Spardello to life at the ACI for the murder of Luis Carrillo.
Spardello pleaded to numerous charges in three separate cases and received the following sentences, which will all be served concurrently with his life sentence for second-degree murder: 10 years suspended sentence with probation for one count of domestic breaking and entering; three years suspended sentence with probation for one count of assault with a dangerous weapon; and one year suspended sentences with probation for the other charges he pleaded to.
Had the case proceeded to trial, the State was prepared to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that on December 18, 2017 Spardello broke into the home of his estranged wife in Providence and assaulted three occupants. Later that evening at a separate residence in Providence, he stabbed Luis Carrillo, causing his death.
The Providence Police Department led the investigation and Assistant Attorney General Gina Lopes prosecuted the case on behalf of the Office of the Attorney General.
