Matthew Locke, 32, was charged in the slayings of Sara Bermudez, 38, Madison Bermudez, 8, James Bermudez, 6, and Michael Bermudez, 2.
The indictments move the case to Worcester Superior Court where Locke will be arraigned at a future date.
He had previously been indicted on four counts of misleading a police investigation in connection with this case.
Those charges remain open in Superior Court.
The Bermudez bodies were found about 3:30 p.m. on March 1 in their home at 10 Old Warren Road, West Brookfield.
There was evidence that there had been a fire in the home that extinguished itself.
Locke also was indicted for armed burglary, and arson of a dwelling.
Assistant District Attorneys Christopher P. Hodgens and Brett F. Dillon are prosecuting the case.
