PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island’s highest court has ruled that a convicted murderer and reputed Patriarca crime family associate was on probation when he assaulted a doctor and her husband at a Providence club.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2pJjKfP ) the state Supreme Court’s Wednesday ruling could lead to more prison time for 66-year-old Anthony Parrillo. It sends Parrillo’s case back to the Superior Court for arguments about whether he violated his probation on his double murder convictions in the 2011 attack on Dr. Sumiya Majeed and Jacob Fernandez.

Parrillo was convicted of assault charges in 2015. Police say Parrillo mistook Fernandez for a man who was involved in a stabbing at the club, dragged the couple outside and then beat them.

Parrillo pleaded guilty in 1986 to the 1982 murder of two men.
