FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) - A prosecutor in Massachusetts is preparing a governor’s warrant to bring two Connecticut men over the border to face charges in connection with a deadly Fitchburg fire.

Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. on Monday identified 24-year-old Fitchburg resident Kevin Cabrera as the man who died in the Saturday fire.

Early says he’s now trying to bring 37-year-old Ramon Millan and 32-year-old Jose Crespo, both of Bridgeport, Connecticut, to face Massachusetts charges of assault with a deadly weapon, arson and armed home invasion.

The two men declined to agree to be returned to Massachusetts on Monday after being arraigned on fugitive from justice charges in Bridgeport District Court. It’s not clear if they have lawyers.

Firefighters found Cabrera dead, severely burned and with his hands tied Saturday night.
