(Jamaica Observer) Law enforcement authorities in the United States have captured a Jamaican man they say used a machete to kill his wife and daughter.

Miami Gardens Police Chief Delma Noel-Pratt said a fire rescue crew spotted 57-year-old Noel Chambers Tuesday night and called police, who took him into custody.

Chambers, police say is a hulking man known to friends in Jamaica and Miami by the nickname “Massive.”

Police had searched for Chambers since Saturday when they found the bodies of 48-year-old Lorrice Harris and 10-year-old Shayla. Another daughter, 29-year-old Shanalee Chambers, was critically injured.

The Miami Herald reports that Harris’ family spoke to the media on Monday to help police find Chambers. Daughter Ashley Anderson called her father a “monster.”

Ernie Saunders said his sister had asked for a divorce before she was killed. Chambers is charged with two counts of first-degree murder. A lawyer wasn’t listed on jail records.
