An ex-convict captured in New Hampshire has been charged in New York with setting a fire that killed three members of his family in the rural upstate home they shared with him, authorities said Thursday.

Matthew Slocum, 23, surrendered in Gilsum, N.H., late Wednesday after a daylong search in three states. Police had been looking for him, his girlfriend and their baby since early Wednesday, when a fire in White Creek, N.Y., killed his mother, stepfather and stepbrother.
