A grand jury has indicted a man who was captured in Florida 15 months after his parents were found strangled in their burning New Hampshire home.

The Hillsborough County grand jury, meeting in Manchester, indicted Matthew Dion on two counts of first-degree murder; two counts of second-degree murder; one count of arson; and three counts of possessing child sexual abuse images. The indictments, made public Monday, were handed up on Sept. 17.

The 40-year-old Dion has been jailed without bail. Prosecutors say he beat his parents and strangled them with a wire in March 2014 in their home, then set the house on fire several days later.

Dion was placed on the U.S. Marshals Service's 15 Most Wanted list in April. He was arrested June 3 at a hotel in Orange Park, Florida.
