Suspected of killing a Massachusetts couple arrested in Florida

Miami, Dec 4 ( Associated Press) The alleged killer of a married couple found dead in Massachusetts (USA) and with signs of violence arrested in Miami-Beach, South Florida, is being followed in several states since last Friday when murders were registered was done, officials said.

Christopher Keeley, arrested by Miami-Dade County police, is wanted for the murders of Carl and Vicki Mattson, married and both 70 years old, who were found stabbed to death at their home in Marshfield, Massachusetts, last Tuesday night.

Local CBS Channel 4 in Miami reported Sunday that a 27-year-old man in Marshfield, a city of 25,825 residents about an hour from Boston, has been charged with the couple’s murder.

Timothy Cruz, Plymouth County District Attorney, where Marshfield is located, and Marshfield County Police Chief Phillip Tavares confirmed Keeley’s arrest and said they located him in Miami Beach this weekend.

According to authorities, Keeley had changed his hair color and appearance prior to his arrest.

According to Cruz, Keeley was an acquaintance of the slain couple and fled the scene in a vehicle that was later recovered in the city of Avon, Massachusetts.

The prosecutor’s office has said it is possible that Keely’s attack on the Matsons, whose dog was also found dead in the home, was “targeted and not random”.

Neighbors in Boston, citing interviews with NBC Channel 10, details that Kelly was a friend of the couple’s son and had been living with the family for several months.

Keeley is due to appear in a Miami-Dade court soon to determine whether he will be extradited to Massachusetts or the defendant will waive extradition.
