WASHINGTON, D.C. — An investigation that began after flames devoured a $4.5 million mansion led to a grand jury indictment Wednesday in the killings of three people from a prominent Washington family and their housekeeper.

Darron Dellon Dennis Wint, 35, faces 20 felony charges, including first-degree murder while armed, burglary, kidnapping, extortion, arson, and theft, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

He’s set to be arraigned on Friday.

Investigators found the remains of Savvas, Amy and Philip Savopoulos and housekeeper Veralicia Fernandez last May inside the charred home, which is located in northwest Washington near a number of embassies and Vice President Joe Biden’s residence.

Police arrested Wint the next week after his DNA was allegedly found on a pizza crust at the scene, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.

Forensic analysis also matched traces of blood on Wint’s shoe to at least one of the murder victims, two law enforcement officials said.

The indictment returned by the grand jury does not detail the evidence against the suspect, who is also known as Daron Dylon Wint.

It says Savvas and Amy Savopoulos and their housekeeper were beaten with a baseball bat and stabbed.

Philip, their 10-year-old son, was stabbed and burned, according to the indictment.

Wint is also accused of setting fire to the Savopoulos family’s home.

While authorities haven’t ruled out others being involved, Wint is the only suspect they’ve identified in the killings.

    He’s an animal and needs to be executed without mercy. They should make an example of him being lowered into a vat of boiling oil slowly and make other felons watch as his ear piercing screams will be heard for miles. Even better to put it on prime time tv for all thugs to see.

    i’m pretty sure this was a good guy turning his life around that just happened to murder a whole innocent family including a ten year old that had over 70 years of life left to live. Kill this POS! he does not deserve to live! don’t let his family see him or nothing. this bum is not entitled to ANY rights other than to die in the most painful way possible. i can hear his mom claiming he was not a bad guy….

      Don’t worry, I’m sure the liberals will be out in force saying it was just racist cops who are trying to frame this guy by planting the evidence.
