Extradited man from Canada arraigned on murder charges from 1988
NASHUA - One of two Canadian men facing first-degree murder charges in connection with the 1988 murder of two women in Nashua has been returned to the U.S. and arraigned in Nashua.
David Caplin, 54, was arraigned on Wednesday morning after a lengthy extradition process that ended on April 23, when the Canadian Supreme Court ordered that Caplin and his fellow suspect Anthony Barnaby be surrendered to the United States.
Both men are charged with stabbing to death Brenda Warner and Charlene Ranstrom on Oct. 8, 1988 in their Mason Street apartment in Nashua. In 2011, arrest warrants were issued for both men and extradition proceedings began.
Nashua police say the investigation into the circumstances of the women's deaths is continuing, and anyone with information is asked to contact the Nashua police department at (603) 594-3500.
