State Police said Saturday that Cynthia Matala, 58, died at Albany Medical Center Hospital the night after she was found on her front lawn with major head injuries next to Michael Matala, 62, who was dead. Police said Anthony Repp, 22, Cynthia Matala's son and Michael Matala's stepson, allegedly beat the couple at their 1445 Route 40 home Thursday night then stowed himself away on a freight train headed for Boston.

Repp was arrested Friday morning in Deerfield, Mass., ending a massive manhunt that involved dogs and helicopters overnight Thursday into Friday. State Police said he told a Deerfield police officer his name and that he had committed a crime in New York.

Repp is now awaiting extradition to New York. He is not expected to return to Rensselaer County until at least next week, District Attorney Richard McNally said Saturday. He will, in all likelihood, go before a Massachusetts magistrate Monday to determine whether he will waive extradition, McNally said. If not, a formal extradition process will follow.

State Police said Friday Repp will face a second-degree murder charge for the death of Michael Matala. On Saturday they said additional charges are pending.
