A man was arrested in the killing of a Massachusetts law school professor and his father, who authorities say was a suspect in a domestic violence and sexual assault case.
The Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office said in a news release on Wednesday that Steven James Condon, 36, was arrested Thursday after a manhunt.
Police said Condon told officers he had killed Cesar Condon Sr., a professor at Boston University Law School, and his son, Steven Jr., a lawyer who was also a law school graduate.
Condon was the brother of a man who is charged in the killings of his wife, wife and son.
Steven Condon Jr. has pleaded not guilty.
Cao said he is in the custody of Boston Police.
He was scheduled to appear in court in Boston on Friday.
A court hearing was set for Friday afternoon.
The case is one of the most high-profile in recent years to focus on domestic violence, sexual assault and family violence, as well as the role of the judiciary in protecting vulnerable communities.
