NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - The second Canadian man charged with the 1988 stabbing deaths of two Nashua women has been returned to New Hampshire.

Authorities say 48-year-old Anthony Barnaby was extradited to the state Tuesday. He faces two counts each of first- and second-degree murder in connection with the October 1988 deaths of Brenda Warner and Charlene Ranstrom.

Police say Barnaby and 54-year-old David Caplin killed the women after several disputes. Three juries failed to convict or acquit Barnaby, the last in 1990. Officials dropped first-degree murder charges against Caplin after courts threw out much of the evidence. Both men returned to Canada.

They were ordered extradited last month after police said new DNA evidence and witnesses justify another trial.

Barnaby is to be arraigned Wednesday. Caplin is being held without bail.
