Kin Of Cop Shooting Suspect Faces Robbery Charges

A man charged with playing a role in a botched robbery that led to the death of a Woburn police officer faces arraignment on charges in a separate robbery.

Arthur Cinelli, of Newburyport, has pleaded not guilty to charges he sent his brother, Domenic Cinelli, text messages with advice on how to rob the jewelry department of a Kohl's department store in Woburn on Dec. 26, 2010. Authorities say Domenic Cinelli fatally shot Woburn police officer John "Jack" Maguire during the robbery. Domenic Cinelli was killed by return fire.

Arthur Cinelli is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Woburn Superior Court on armed robbery and other charges in the robbery of a Stop & Shop supermarket in Stoneham in November 2010.

Authorities say the brothers robbed the Stop & Shop together.
