In July, a 22-year-old South End man became the first person to be charged in an alleged scheme to steal money from a charity established for victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.
On Thursday, Attorney General Martha Coakley’s office said Branden Mattier had help from his older brother, Domunique Grice, 27, in the plot to bilk The One Fund Boston by filing a claim on behalf of a relative who died more than 10 years ago.
A Suffolk County grand jury indicted the brothers Thursday on larceny and fraud charges.
An arraignment date in Suffolk Superior Court has not been set.
“These defendants allegedly orchestrated a scheme to defraud The One Fund of more than $2 million, money that was donated by many generous people and intended for the real victims of the Marathon attack,” Coakley said in a statement.
