Men face first-degree murder charges

Three Boston men have been indicted on first-degree murder charges and other offenses in the death of a 20-year-old Cambridge man who was shot to death last year, Suffolk prosecutors announced Monday.

Eric Barnes, 28, and Tyronne Seams, 28, both of Dorchester, and Kenneth Sales, 23, of Roxbury, were indicted Friday on charges of first-
degree murder and armed robbery. Sales also was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office said.

On March 5, 2013, Boston police responded to Langdon Street in Roxbury, where there were reports of a body inside a parked car. A witness said he had seen the car parked in the same spot all day long, prosecutors said.

Investigating officers found that Brousseau Normil had rented the vehicle. He was dead when officers arrived. They found he had suffered a fatal gunshot wound, prosecutors said.

A Suffolk County Grand Jury determined he had been shot during an armed robbery, prosecutors said.

Barnes is to be arraigned Tuesday in Suffolk Superior Court. Sales and Seams are being held on unrelated charges in Maine and Rhode Island, respectively. They are to return to Massachusetts for arraignment at an undetermined date.

Brianna Erickson, 22, of Roxbury, was indicted on a charge of armed robbery in the case. Her superior court arraignment has not been scheduled.

Assistant District Attorney Mark Lee, deputy chief of the district attorney’s homicide unit, led the grand jury investigation.
