CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Authorities say a man who is suspected of killing his parents and setting their house on fire in New Hampshire is believed to be in Atlanta, Georgia.

Manchester Detective Sgt. Joe Mucci says he has strong reasons to believe 38-year-old Matthew Dion is in the metropolitan Atlanta area.

New Hampshire investigators have been looking for Dion since the bodies of his parents were found strangled with a wire after an explosion and fire March 24 at the Manchester home they shared with him. Dion is charged with second-degree murder and three counts of possession of child pornography.

Mucci said Wednesday that Dion may be driving a silver 2013 Hyundai Elantra police says he stole in Florida.

There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
