Man charged in Pawcatuck hit-run fatality


STONINGTON — A 30-year-old Griswold man was charged Thursday in the April 25 hit-and-run accident in which a Pawcatuck man was struck and killed.

Aaron J. Caswell, a former Westerly resident and a 2002 graduate of Westerly High School who now lives at 23 South Main St., Griswold, was arrested by Stonington police on a court-issued warrant Thursday charging him with multiple felony counts in connection with the death of Grover C. Moree, Jr., 51, of Robinson St., Pawcatuck. Moree, who worked in the Westerly area, was walking near the intersection of Routes 78 and 2 at 5 a.m. when he was struck. Police had reported that witnesses saw that a gray car had left the scene after Moree was struck.

Stonington police charged Caswell with evading responsibility, misconduct with a motor vehicle, providing police with a false statement, and second-degree tampering with a witness. He was being held on a court-set $100,000 bond for an appearance in New London Superior Court today.

Moree was taken by Lifestar helicopter to the Rhode Island Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

According to information on Moree’s death, he lived in Hartford most of his life before moving to Pawcatuck and was the father of two daughters and a son, Victoria Rose, Cassandra L. and Christopher J. Moree, all of Newington. He was also survived by his former wife, Diane Moree. His memorial service was held in Wethersfield, Conn.
