Convicted Brazilian murderer arrested in Framingham


A man living in Framingham was arrested Sunday after it came to light that he had been convicted of murder in Brazil, the AP reports.

Vander Pedro Silveira, 42, is being held by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Silveira was convicted in absentia in 2004 of a murder he committed in 1999.

Silveira is the third convicted murderer in the last three years to be arrested in Framingham.
