MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Law enforcement authorities have captured a man they say used a machete to kill his wife and daughter.
Miami Gardens Police Chief Delma Noel-Pratt said a fire rescue crew spotted 57-year-old Noel Chambers Tuesday night and called police, who took him into custody.
Police had searched for Chambers since Saturday when they found the bodies of 48-year-old Lorrice Harris and 10-year-old Shayla. Another daughter, 29-year-old Shanalee Chambers, was critically injured.
The Miami Herald reports that Harris' family spoke to the media on Monday to help police find Chambers. Daughter Ashley Anderson called her father a "monster."
Ernie Saunders said his sister had asked for a divorce before she was killed.
Chambers is charged with two counts of first-degree murder. A lawyer wasn't listed on jail records.
