A man wanted for the murders of two people in north suburban Algonquin was arrested Thursday in Wisconsin.

Maxim Parnov, 36, was taken into custody without incident at a home in Salem, Wisconsin around 6:45 a.m., Algonquin police said in a statement.

He was charged with four counts of first-degree murder and two counts of concealment of a homicide in the deaths of two people found Wednesday in a home in the 400 block of La Fox River Drive, police said.

The two were identified as Peter Almen and Elvira Almen, both 64 years old, the McHenry County coroner’s office said Friday.

Officers were conducting a well-being check when they made the discovery, police said.

A cause of death has not been determined, but police said they were investigating the case as a double-murder that was domestic-related.

Parnov was being held by the Kenosha County sheriff’s department and was awaiting extradition. His bail was set at $5 million.
