    MA - David Dowjat, 59, found dismembered, Rutland, 8 June 2014


    A 65-year-old Holden man accused of murdering his estranged brother and dismembering his body pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Tuesday morning in Worcester Superior Court.

    Michael S. Dowjat of 119 Lovell Road, Holden, was ordered held without bail on a charge of first-degree murder in the stabbing death of his 59-year-old brother, David Alan, whose body was found June 14 inside a locked basement bomb shelter in his home at 124 East County Road (Route 68) in Rutland. According to the murder indictment, Mr. Alan was killed on or about June 8.

    Assistant District Attorney Terry J. McLaughlin told Judge James R. Lemire that Mr. Alan suffered more than 70 stab wounds to his head and torso and that his head, arms and legs had been severed.

    McLaughlin said the alleged killing took place after Dowjat, who reportedly hadnít seen his brother in 20 years, was cut out of their fatherís will. He noted evidence indicated Dowjat had financial problems and was filing for bankruptcy.
