WEBSTER, N.Y. (WHEC) -- A man is facing a new charge after his arrest in a Webster homicide case.

A grand jury indicted Piero Scala, 39, for second-degree murder and criminal possession of stolen property in the death of Cathy O'Brien, 56.


Police said that they found O'Brien's body in October inside her Oakdale Drive home. Officers said that she suffered multiple stab wounds.

Investigators said that the victim and suspect knew each other.

Scala previously only faced a murder charge in the case.
