Two Canadians indicted in the double murder of 2 Nashua woman
NASHUA - A grand jury has indicted two Canadian men who were extradited earlier this year in connection with the double murder of two Nashua women in the late 1980s.
Anthony Barnaby and David Caplin are Canadian Micmac Indians who were working construction in Nashua when 48-year-old Charlene Ranstrom and 32-year-old Brenda Warner were bound, beaten and stabbed to death in their home in October 1988. Supreme Court of Canada ordered their extradition in April.
Three juries failed to convict or acquit Barnaby. Officials dropped first-degree murder charges against Caplin after courts threw out much of the evidence. Prosecutors said new DNA evidence and witness accounts justify a new trial.
