WINONA — Two fugitives wanted for killing three people in Florida have been arrested in a Minnesota state park.

Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand says the two men were considered armed and dangerous and were taken into custody at Whitewater State Park early Thursday. Brand tells KAGE the two were asleep in a camper at the park when authorities moved in on them.

The sheriff says the men are suspects in the execution-style slaying at a farm in Florida. Authorities didn’t immediately provide more information about the Florida homicides.
