From Boynton Beach Police:
“An 11-time convicted felon wanted for the murders of two Boynton Beach men last month has been taken into custody.

He is pending extradition to Palm Beach County, where he will face charges of two counts of first degree murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
