NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) — The suspect in a 2006 double slaying in Puerto Rico has been captured in Massachusetts.

Police say 36-year-old Luis Carrasquillo-Lizardi was arrested Wednesday in New Bedford in a third-floor apartment where he had been living under an alias.

He was arraigned on a fugitive from justice charge later Wednesday in New Bedford District Court and held without bail.

The U.S. Marshals Service says Carrasquillo-Lizardi is wanted in the September 2006 shooting deaths of his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.

Authorities say a suspect entered the woman’s home in Caguas, Puerto Rico and shot Andres Gonzalez-Rodriguez and Vanessa Diaz-Gonzalez.

Carrasquillo-Lizardi waived extradition. It could not be determined if he has a lawyer.
