WOBURN - A status hearing will be held in Middlesex Superior Court on Friday for the three surviving suspects in the officer John Maguire murder case.

Officer Maguire was murdered on Dec. 26, 2010, while trying to stop an armed robbery at Kohl’s department store in East Woburn. He was shot and killed in an exchange of gunfire with Domenic Cinelli of Woburn, who was shot and killed by Maguire.

Scott Hanright of Wakefield was arrested at the scene and later indicted by a grand jury on 22 criminal counts, including first degree murder. Hanright allegedly served as Domenic Cinelli’s lookout during the heist.

Kevin Dingwell, also of Wakefield, was arrested at the scene and charged with four counts of being an accessory to robbery after the fact, and two counts of misleading a police officer. Dingwell allegedly responded to a call from Hanright asking for a ride home after the botched robbery, which took place in the midst of a blizzard.

Arthur Cinelli of Newburyport was subsequently charged with conspiracy to commit masked armed robbery and accessory before the fact to masked armed robbery. Authorities allege he helped his brother plan the Kohl’s heist.

It is unclear whether Arthur Cinelli will appear in court on Friday. He was serving a sentence at a federal prison in New York on unrelated charges, and during his incarceration is only eligible to travel to Middlesex Superior Court for evidentiary hearings.

Arthur Cinelli is also a suspect in an armed robbery at a supermarket in Stoneham a month before the Kohl’s robbery.

Both Cinelli brothers had been released on parole, and the state parole system was revamped in the wake of officer Maguire’s murder to make it more difficult for repeat offenders to be released.
