Authorities also arrested Antoinette Stephen last night in Massachusetts in connection with the killing.

The husband, Kashif Parvaiz, was wounded in the attack that killed his 27-year-old wife, Nazish Noorani. The shooting took place in front of the couple's 3-year-old son.

Parvaiz and Antoinette Stephen both face charges of murder, conspiracy and weapons offenses. Parvaiz also faces child-endangerment charges.
