NBC Boston reports prosecutors today charged that Fouad Baghdad, 25, died early Saturday because Bryan Rice, 22, wanted his gold chain.
Rice was ordered held without bail today at his arraignment on charges he murdered Baghdad around 2 a.m. on Saturday outside 101 Canal St., where he allegedly spotted Baghdad-Zouggagh sitting on the curb after an evening with friends at a nearby sports bar. The owner of the gun, Anthony Baptista-Goncalves, 24, was charged as an accessory to murder. Both were ordered held without bail.
Rice allegedly tried to wrestle Baghdad’s gold chain and medallion off of him, allegedly shooting and killing Baghdad when he fought back, prosecutors said.
Baghdad-Zouggagh grew up and lived in West Roxbury and attended Boston Latin School. After graduation in 2013, he went to Bentley University in Waltham.
