Convicted killer to be arraigned in 1988 Mass. slaying

Posted: Updated:

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) - Prosecutors say a man convicted of killing his mother and a newlywed Washington state couple has been returned to Massachusetts to face a murder charge in a 1988 slaying.

The Bristol County District Attorney's office said Wednesday that 47-year-old Daniel Tavares will be arraigned Monday in Fall River Superior Court. Tavares was indicted in April for the stabbing death of 32-year-old Gayle Botelho.

Botelho, a mother of three young children, disappeared after telling her roommate she was leaving her Fall River apartment for a few minutes. Her remains were found 12 years later in the backyard of a Fall River home where Tavares had lived.

Tavares told authorities where to find Botelho's body and implicated two other men in her death. Last year a woman who had given Tavares an alibi changed her story.
