Suspect in killings of wealthy DC family arrested

Authorities have arrested an ex-convict who was accused in the killings of a wealthy Washington family and their housekeeper.

Members of a fugitive task force arrested Daron Dylon Wint, 34, on Thursday around 11 p.m., about a week after authorities said the family was killed and their mansion set on fire. Wint has been charged with first-degree murder while armed, D.C. police and the U.S. Marshals Service said.

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.

Starting your Friday out with cool temps.

We're starting this morning with more sunshine then we saw yesterday. 

It is a chilly morning, by May standards, with readings as low as the lower 40s across southern Tennessee. 

Most of us will start the day in the 45-50° range. The record low for Huntsville is 43° so it's unlikely we set a new record this morning. Look for a quick warm up with plenty of sun.
