BOSTON —

A man convicted of killing three people, including his mother and a newlywed couple in Washington state, has been indicted in the 1988 stabbing death of a Fall River, Mass., woman.

Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter on Monday announced the indictment of Daniel Tavares Jr. in the death of Gayle Botelho. In 2000, police found her remains buried in the backyard of a house Tavares led them to and where he lived when she disappeared.

Tavares pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the 1991 death of his mother and was in prison until 2007.

After a judge released him while awaiting trial for assaults on prison guards, he fled to Washington, where he shot and killed Brian and Beverly Mauck, of Graham, a rural town south of Tacoma.

Tavares is serving a life sentence in Washington.
