SAUGUS, Mass.—The son of one of the two women found dead near a Massachusetts school has agreed to be returned to the state from Maine, where he's being detained.
Authorities say 23-year-old Joseph Wright was taken into custody at about 6 p.m. Tuesday after he crossed from Maine into Canada. He was returned to Houlton, Maine, on Wednesday, and he appeared briefly before a judge via video conference on a fugitive from justice charge.
Wright is the son of 54-year-old victim Donna Breau of Lynn.
