Suspect in Killings of Wealthy D.C. Family Arrested


WASHINGTON (AP) - Authorities have arrested a suspect in the slayings of a corporate executive, his wife, their 10-year-old son and a housekeeper at a northwest Washington mansion.

D.C. police and the U.S. Marshals Service say 34-year-old Daron Dylon Wint was arrested in northeast Washington around 11 p.m. Thursday by members of a fugitive task force and charged with first-degree murder while armed. Investigators had been seeking Wint in New York City.

Wint is a welder who previously worked for Maryland-based American Iron Works. Savvas Savopoulos, who was slain at his home, was the CEO of that company. Savopoulos' $4.5 million mansion was set on fire after the slayings on May 14. His wife, Amy, their son, Philip, and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa were also slain.

Wint is a native of Guyana.
