The main suspect in a quadruple-murder investigation in Florida was arrested this weekend in Southern Minnesota.

Henry Segura had lived a quiet life since his recent move to a rental home on Lake Jefferson, near Kasota, but just before 6:30 a.m. Friday he was arrested outside the home on charges that he murdered his girlfriend and her three children last year in Florida.

Le Sueur County Sheriff Tom Doherty says the 31-year-old Segura, previously from Tallahassee, Fla., had been living and working in Kasota and Ottawa for about a month as a certified welder for Unimin.

Segura is now in the county jail pending a hearing to extradite him to Tallahassee.

He was charged Thursday in the November 2010 killings of his 27-year-old girlfriend, Brandi Peters, her 6-year-old twin girls, Tamiyah and Taniyah, and 3-year-old Javante, Segura and Peters’ son.
