A weekslong manhunt ended with the arrest of a Florida man accused of the carefully planned slayings of four relatives at Thanksgiving. Paul Merhige, 35, was arrested without a struggle last night at a motel in the Florida Keys, a Jupiter police spokesman said. He credited the TV show America's Most Wanted for the tip that led to Merhige's capture.
Police say Merhige shot and killed his 33-year-old twin sisters, Carla Merhige and Lisa Knight, both of Miami, along with his aunt Raymonde Joseph, 76, and his young cousin. Police said Knight was pregnant. Authorities have said Merhige carefully planned the killings. Merhige was heard saying after the shootings that he had waited 20 years to kill the relatives. Merhige sat through three hours of dinner and sing-a-longs around the piano before the shootings, Sitton has said
