HAVERHILL (CBS) – Police have arrested a man wanted for last week’s double murder in Haverhill.

Twenty-year-old Juan Carlos Sanchez of Haverhill was captured Sunday evening after a chase through the woods off Prospect Street, about a mile away from the scene of the killings.

Twenty-year-old Andy Guzman of Lawrence and 19-year-old William Melchionda of Haverhill were shot and killed July 23 at a home on River Street.

Two other men were wounded but survived.

There’s no word yet on a motive.

Sanchez now faces two counts of murder.

He will be arraigned Monday in Haverhill District Court.
