Man arrested in mansion murder deaths indicted on 20 charges

An ex-convict who was arrested last May in a case involving the deaths of three family members and their housekeeper inside a northwest Washington mansion has now been indicted on 20 felony charges including murder, kidnapping, extortion and arson.

Prosecutors said in a statement that 35-year-old Daron Dylon Wint, was indicted by a grand jury Wednesday. Prosecutors said he will be arraigned Friday.

Wint, a resident of Lanham, Maryland, was arrested a week after a May 14 fire at a $3 million mansion. The fire led authorities to the crime scene where business executive Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy and their 10-year-old son Philip were found dead. Their housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa was also found unconscious and was taken to a hospital where she died.
