The suspect wanted in the murder of a wealthy D.C. family and their housekeeper was arrested Thursday night, authorities said.

Police said that 34-year-old Daron Dylon Wint was taken into custody in the northeastern part of the nation's capital.

A federal source told a WTTG-TV reporter that a large amount of cash was also found with the suspect.

Police identified Wint as a suspect in the quadruple murder using DNA found on the crust of a Dominos pizza that was left at the scene. A warrant for his arrest was issued Wednesday night.
