Three young people were indicted Tuesday by a Suffolk County Grand Jury, charged with first-degree murder in the brutal slaying of 58-year-old pizza deliveryman Richel Nova in Hyde Park.

The indictments charge Alexander Gallett, 18, of Hyde Park, his girlfriend, Yamiley Mathurin, 17, of Mattapan, and Michel St. Jean, 20, of Hyde Park, with first-degree murder, armed robbery, and breaking and entering for the death of Nova shortly after midnight on September 3.

Gallett, Mathurin, and St. Jean will be arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court Wednesday at 2 p.m.

The trio allegedly called for a Domino’s Pizza to be delivered to the vacant house at 742 Hyde Park Ave. Nova arrived to make the delivery and was allegedly lured inside by Mathurin and butchered to death, with stabs to the chest, back, and throat.

His assailants stole the food, his cash, his keys, and his vehicle, which they allegedly used to make their escape. Police said the three actually ate the dead man’s pizza after killing him.

They are being held without bail.
