NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- Authorities have arrested and charged a man in connection with the killing of a couple who were found stabbed to death inside a Flushing apartment last Wednesday. 

Sai Chun Lam, a 52-year-old Queens man, surrendered to police and was charged with two counts of murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

The NYPD announced on Friday they were searching for Lam, and the Daily News reports Lam's family turned him in to the 109th Precinct stationhouse Saturday morning. 

Police believe Lam stabbed 64-year-old Deyu Zhal and 67-year-old Chunfu Liu to death in their subdivided apartment at 37th Avenue and Parsons Boulevard on Tuesday night, the Daily News reports.

The two victims were discovered Wednesday morning by a neighbor, reports say. 

Neighbors reportedly told police Lam had been arguing with the couple and disappeared before they were found dead.
