Neighbors described the area in Pembroke where the stabbing occurred as recreational and quiet–a place where people go to fish and spend time outdoors.

Police arrested Facchini after an intense, day-long manhunt. Officers from Hanson, Halifax, Bourne, Mashpee, Wareham and Plymouth assisted in the search.

Facchini, who is also charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, is scheduled to be arraigned in Plymouth District Court on Monday.

Police said Facchini has no known address and has been staying at motels.
