CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire authorities say a recently created Cold Case Unit has brought criminal charges in the deaths of four family members in an apartment house arson in 1989.
Attorney General Michael Delaney said Wednesday evening that 53-year-old David McLeod had been arrested on four counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Carl Hina, his wife Lori, their four-month old daughter Lillian, and Carl Hina's 12-year-old daughter Sara.
The medical examiner ruled all four victims died from smoke inhalation after the Jan. 14, 1989 fire on High Street in Keene.
Delaney said McLeod was arrested Wednesday in West Sacramento, Calif., where he has lived for 15 years. McLeod was expected to be returned to New Hampshire late Thursday.
