A man suspected of murdering his wife and four children eight years ago in France has been arrested at Glasgow airport. 58-year old Xavier Dupont de Ligonnes was detained upon his arrival from a flight from Paris.
The man had been long hunted by French authorities in connection with the macabre find of his family at their house in Nantes in 2011. His 48-year old wife, together with 21-year old Arthur, 18-year old Thomas, Anne aged 16 and 13-year old Benoît were found buried in their home garden. Two family dogs were also buried at the place.
Reports said that the family members were all killed by two shots in their heads, likely by a silencer firearm. Their murderer then covered them with lime and buried them under the concrete.
