A Vineyard resident who has been charged in six mainland stabbings will also face a murder charge in Connecticut. 

Jared Ravizza, 26, was in Plymouth District Court Monday to see if he was competent to stand trial for the stabbings in Massachusetts. No determination was made, but during the hearing court officials said that an arrest warrant had been issued out of Connecticut on charges of murder, criminal mischief and two counts of animal cruelty.

Connecticut state police have been investigating Mr. Ravizza, who lived on the Island for a few years, since he allegedly went on a violent spree on May 25. Police found 70-year-old Bruce Feldman and two dogs dead in a Deep River, Conn. home where Mr. Ravizza had been staying. 

According to police reports, Mr. Ravizza went on to stab four girls in a Braintree movie theatre and two employees at a Braintree McDonald’s in the hours after Mr. Feldman’s death. He was eventually apprehended by state police after crashing his SUV in Sandwich. 

Mr. Ravizza had been charged for the Braintree and Plymouth stabbings, but had not yet been arraigned for Mr. Feldman’s death in Deep River. Connecticut state police Monday said the case was still active and declined to comment.

Mr. Ravizza has been held at Bridgewater State Hospital for a mental health evaluation since he first appeared before a court on May 28. No determination was made Monday and Plymouth District Court judge Scott Peterson recommitted Mr. Ravizza to the state-run hospital for further evaluation, pending a further hearing on July 17.

Mr. Ravizza had both West Tisbury and Chilmark addresses in legal paperwork. 

He and Mr. Feldman reportedly knew each other going back to at least 2023. Mr. Feldman came to the Vineyard on vacation with Mr. Ravizza at one point, and in July 2023, a vacationer found Mr. Feldman on the porch of the West Tisbury home the Ravizza family had previously rented, according to police reports.  

The two developed a friendship and were living together as roommates in Connecticut, according to police reports.

Mr. Ravizza is scheduled to have a hearing in Edgartown District Court on July 22 in a domestic violence case where he allegedly attacked his father in West Tisbury in April. He is expected to attend the hearing virtually, according to court records.
