(MyFoxBoston.com) -- The estranged husband of a slain mother of four children is under arrest and facing murder charges.
The Plymouth County District Attorney's office says Jean-Michel Beaulieu, 42, was taken in to custody near the Canadian border in Vermont last week.
Beaulieu's wife Florence was found dead by one of her children in her home on Forest Avenue in Brockton on May 16.
Florence's family claim Beaulieu was an abusive husband, and that Florence had filed for divorce in April. Court records show she had also filed restraining orders against twice, but withdrew them both.
Beaulieu is charged with the murder of his wife, being a fugitive from justice and three counts of violating a restraining order in Massachusetts.
