CAMBRIDGE — A Framingham man has been indicted in the May 20 beating deaths of his wife and stepson in their Framingham apartment.
Jeremias Bins, 30, will be arraigned Monday in Middlesex Superior Court at 2 p.m., charged with two counts of murder after yesterday’s grand jury indictment.
On Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., Voices Against Violence will hold a remembrance for Bins’ wife and stepson. Family and friends will gather on Second Street — between Beaver Street and Taralli Terrace — for speeches, song and dance dedicated to the pair’s memory, after the conclusion of Framingham’s National Night Out event.
Authorities claim Bins, angry about the amount of time his wife Carla Souza, 37, spent with the Mormon church, beat her and her 11-year-old son, Caique Souza, to death with a hammer while she was on the phone calling police.
When police arrived at 27 Gordon St. around 11 p.m., they found Souza and her son beaten and bloodied on the bedroom floor. Bins had left the apartment and the couple’s 5-month-old son, Felipe, was also missing.
Around 12:30 a.m., Bins turned himself in at the police station. The infant was unharmed. According to court records, Bins confessed when questioned by authorities.
Caique Souza was taken to the MetroWest Medical Center’s Framingham Union campus where he was pronounced dead. Carla Souza was flown to Massachusetts General Hospital where she was pronounced dead at 1:30 a.m. on May 21.
At Bins’ May 22 arraignment in Framingham District Court, a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf, and he has been held without bail since then at the Middlesex County Jail in Cambridge.
Also on May 22, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled both deaths as homicides. The ME said both Caique and Carla died from multiple skull fractures and cerebral lacerations due to multiple blows with a blunt object, according to court records.
