NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - A Canadian man is in New Hampshire to face murder charges stemming from the 1988 killings of two women in a Nashua apartment.

The state attorney general’s office says David Caplin was turned over by Canadian authorities Tuesday to the U.S. Marshal’s Service. He was then arrested by Nashua police.

Caplin’s return to the U.S. follows a lengthy legal fight that ended last month when a Canadian court ordered his extradition along with Anthony Barnaby.

Caplin and Barnaby were working construction in Nashua when Charlene Ranstrom and Brenda Warner were bound, beaten and stabbed to death in their home.

Caplin is expected to be arraigned Wednesday. He’s in custody and can’t be reached for comment. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.

Prosecutors say they can’t comment on when Barnaby can be expected in New Hampshire.
