A 78-year-old man who was beaten during a Providence home invasion has died from his injuries.

Delor "Dean" Cabral died on Sunday at Rhode Island Hospital after he was critically injured last month during an armed home invasion on Ontario Street.

Cabral was trying to defend his tenant from the armed gunman when they attacked him.

Wilbert Richardson and Joel Valdez are currently being held at the ACI in connection with the crime.

Providence Police say they are waiting for the medical examiners office to release autopsy results so they can determine if Cabral's death is a homicide.
