CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The man charged with killing four people in a 1989 arson fire in Keene is being brought back to New Hampshire for prosecution.
The attorney general's office says state police detectives will escort David McLeod back to the state Wednesday. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Keene District Court on Thursday.
The 53-year-old McLeod was arrested in West Sacramento, Calif., June 30 and charged with four counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Carl and Lori Hina, their 4-month old daughter and Hina's 12-year-old daughter.
The state's new cold case squad reopened the investigation into the fire at the Keene apartment building where the family lived.
Residents of the house told police at the time of the fire that McLeod bragged he had "torched it."
