(NECN: Brad Puffer, Woburn, Mass.) - New details have been released in the death of a Woburn, Massachusetts police officer at the hands of a paroled criminal. Prosecutors announced new charges and new information about the murder of officer Jack Maguire. Among them, evidence of a family conspiracy and news that will again raise questions about the Massachusetts Parole Board.

Maguire was fatally shot while responding to a report of an armed robbery at a Kohl's department store December 26, 2010. Dominic Cinelli, a career criminal who had been granted parole in 2008, shot and killed Maguire during the botched robbery. Cinelli was killed by police during a shootout.  

Three men have been indicted in the murder, including Arthur Cinelli, the brother of Maguire's murderer. Arthur Cinelli, 50 of Newburyport was indicted on charges including conspiracy to commit masked armed robbery, and accessory before the fact to masked armed robbery.  

Two other men, Scott Hanright, 19, of Wakefield, and Kevin Dingwell, 51, of Wakefield, were previously charged in Woburn District Court.  

According to the Middlesex District Attorney's office, Hanright was indicted on charges of murder, masked armed robbery (4 counts), armed assault with intent to rob (4 counts), stealing by confining (4 counts), assault and battery with a dangerous weapon on a person over the age of 60, assault and battery on a police officer, assault and battery, assault with a dangerous weapon (2 counts), possession of a firearm, possession of ammunition, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building, and conspiracy to commit masked armed robbery.
