Case

The North Coventry homicide happened on September 24, 2017.  The victim was 17-year old David Doyle.  The defendants are Ricardo “Hov” Rivera, Jonathan “Chicken Wing” Malave, and Anaye Raggazino.

Defendant Raggazino, a drug addict, was aware that a resident at 782 Worth Boulevard in North Coventry Township was selling drugs.  She decided that it would be an easy score to rob the drug dealer, stealing drugs and money.  She recruited three males to conduct the robbery: defendants Rivera and Malave, and a still unknown third man.

On September 24, defendant Raggazino made contact with the residents in North Coventry.  Raggazino, Rivera, Malave, and the third male drove to the residence.  Raggazino’s role was to get into the residence and make sure the door was unlocked.  Rivera and the other male would come in and conduct the armed robbery.  Malave was the getaway driver.

Victim David Doyle was staying over at the residence that night.  He was sleeping in the living room with three young children, ages 9, 8, and 3.

Raggazino eventually got into the residence and left the door unlocked.  Rivera and the other male entered, brandishing guns and wearing masks.  The 17-year old victim jumped up to try to protect the children.  The victim and Rivera got into a struggle.  Rivera then fired twice, hitting the victim in the torso and sending the other shot through the ceiling.

All of the defendants fled.  The victim was transported to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The defendants have been charged with murder, conspiracy, robbery, burglary, recklessly endangering another person and related offenses.

North Coventry Police Chief Robert Schurr stated, " This case was another example of outstanding police work by North Coventry Township Detectives and the Chester County District Attorney's Office.  After seven months of tireless work and determination by investigators, those responsible for the shooting death of 17-year old David Doyle will stand trial for their evil and selfish actions".
