A Leominster man is being held without bail on murder charges in the death of an Auburn man, prosecutors said. Matthew S. Padovano is accused of striking and killing David M. Szafarowicz with his Jeep Commander after the two had been involved in a large fight inside Captain’s Lounge on Main Street in Leominster Aug. 3, according to a statement from Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.’s office. Prosecutors said Padovano, 33, did not stop after hitting Szafarowicz, also 33, and then hid the Jeep. A not-guilty plea was entered on Padovano’s behalf at his arraignment in Leominster District Court Friday, Early’s office said.
