Randall "Ricky" Daluz, 34, is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday morning in Penobscot County Superior Court in Bangor.
He was arrested Tuesday afternoon by New Bedford police, who found him prone on the ground outside a home in the city, said Detective Capt. Steven Vicente.
"We had received information from Fall River police that he was in the city and had made arrangements through a friend to give himself up," Vicente said.
Daluz was taken to New Bedford police headquarters, where he was questioned by Bangor police. He was arraigned Wednesday in New Bedford District Court on a fugitive-from-justice charge.
Daluz, whose last known address was Taunton, Mass., was indicted in Maine on murder and arson charges. Also indicted was Nicholas Sexton, 31, of Warwick, R.I., who remained at large Wednesday.
The three bodies were found in a burning car with Rhode Island license plates in a Bangor parking lot early on Aug. 13. Maine authorities have said the victims, all from Maine, were shot before the car was torched.
The victims were identified as Daniel Thomas Borders, 26, of Hermon; Nicolle Ashley Lugdon, 24, of Eddington; and Lucas Alan Tuscano, 28, of Bradford.
