A 36-year-old Haverhill man has been charged with homicide after allegedly inflicting a fatal head injury to a Lawrence man earlier this month, according to the Essex District Attorney. 

Kristopher Graciale was arrested in connection with the death of Nathan Mucci, who was found unresponsive and bleeding from his head outside of a residence on Chandler Street Oct. 8, officials said.
