This article is more than 10 years old.

Richel Nova, a 58-year-old pizza delivery man, was a familiar face around the neighborhood. He balanced two jobs in order to pay for his children's college education, working in a sandwich shop by day and delivering pizzas by night. Nova, the father of three, was murdered last week during a pizza delivery.

Three people from Boston are accused of luring Nova to a vacant home, stabbing him to death and then stealing his money, car and the pizza he delivered.

WBUR's Bianca Vazquez Toness spent time with one of the suspect's close friends.  She shares some of her observations with Radio Boston.
