Federal authorities say a man arrested in Connecticut is wanted for questioning in connection with the killing of his 19-year-old daughter in Massachusetts.
Walter DaSilva, of Danbury, was convicted in 2002 for attempting to murder the teen's mother in Weston, Massachusetts.
The U.S. Marshals Service says DaSilva was arrested Friday in Bridgeport. The daughter, Sabrina DaSilva, was shot to death July 3 outside her home in New Bedford, Massachusetts. She was attending Bristol Community College in nearby Fall River.
DaSilva was charged with being a fugitive from justice and violating probation in connection with the attempted murder conviction. U.S. marshals say he is a Brazilian citizen and that his immigration status is in question.
DaSilva is detained on bail pending an extradition hearing Monday in Bridgeport. It's not clear if he has a lawyer.
