Massachusetts double murder suspect arrested in Georgia

A 20-year-old man from Massachussetts is behind bars after authorities linked him to a double murder.

Nicholas Antoine, of Roxbury, Massachussetts, has been charged with two counts of murder for the deaths of Wilfred Peters and Jeffrey Montaque, who were gunned down in Brighton, Massachusetts in June of this year.

Antoine was arrested in Jonesboro, Georgia on Friday on a felony warrant. He was found in a trailer park, according to information released by law enforcement officials. Antoine was located by the BFD Fugitive Apprehension Unit as well as assistance from the U.S. marshals and law enforcement officials in Georgia.

“I commend the great work of the Homicide Unit and the Fugitive Apprehension Unit for bringing justice to the families who lost their loved ones,” said Boston Police Commissioner William Gross.
