BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The U.S. Marshal’s Office says a fugitive wanted in connection with the deaths of four people in Virginia is in custody in Buffalo.

Federal authorities are expected to release details about the arrest of Alexander Rosevelt Hill Jr. at a news conference in Virginia Thursday evening.

His arrest comes just over a year after authorities found the bodies of three women and a 2-year-old inside a home that had been set on fire. Two of the women had been stabbed.

Hill faces four counts of first-degree murder.
