WASHINGTON (AP) -- Authorities say they believe an ex-convict had help from others holding a family captive inside their mansion for at least 18 hours.

During their ordeal, the business executive and his wife told others to stay away as they frantically arranged for $40,000 in cash to be dropped off at the home. But once the money was left on the seat of a red sports car in the family's garage, the family was killed.

Authorities made those statements in court documents made public Friday in the arrest of Daron Dylon Wint. Wint is charged with killing Savvas Savopoulos, the CEO of a company where he had once worked.

Savopoulos' wife, 10-year-old son and their housekeeper also were killed, and then the house was set on fire.
