WASHINGTON (AP) - An ex-convict who once worked for a wealthy D.C. businessman has been arrested in the deaths of the family and their housekeeper.
Authorities arrested 34-year-old Daron Dylon Wint about 11 p.m. Thursday. He is charged with first-degree murder while armed and is expected to appear in D.C. Superior Court Friday afternoon.
Police have not detailed why Wint would want to kill 46-year-old Savvas Savopoulos; his 47-year-old wife, Amy; their son, Philip; and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa. Three of the four victims had been stabbed or bludgeoned before the fire.
Wint moved to the U.S. from Guyana in 2000, joined the Marines and later worked as a certified welder before racking up a criminal record.
