Murder Suspect Matthew McAveeney Arrested in North Carolina
WINCHESTER — Police Chief Kenneth C. Albertelli issues the following statement:
“Today, police officers in Belmont, N.C. arrested Matthew McAveeney on a murder warrant, for allegedly killing his mother, Barbara McAveeney. A Winchester detective will accompany representatives of the Middlesex District Attorney’s office to North Carolina as soon as possible, in order to begin the process of returning Mr. McAveeney to Massachusetts to account for his alleged crimes.
