The millennial Bonnie and Clyde accused of murdering a man in Stoney Creek in February have been nabbed in Hungary after an international manhunt.

On Feb. 28 around 7:15 p.m., Tyler Pratt, 39, of B.C., was found shot dead in the Arvin Ave. area, Hamilton Police said. A 26-year-old woman was also seriously wounded. Police say she’s since been released from hospital and “continues her recovery.”

Oliver Karafa, 28, and Yun (Lucy) Lu Li, 25, were ID’d as suspects but cops say they fled to Eastern Europe within 24 hours of the shooting.

Working with investigators abroad over the past three months, the pair were arrested in Budapest and are in the process of being extradited to Canada to face first-degree murder and attempted murder charges.

Hamilton cops, in a press release Monday, said they wanted “to recognize all the efforts of our policing partners domestically and internationally, specifically, the Hungarian Fugitive Active Search Team (FAST), for the collective efforts that resulted in the arrest of these wanted individuals.”

In 2012, Karafa was driving impaired at twice the posted speed limit on Mount Pleasant Rd., near Eglinton Ave. E., in Toronto when he slammed a Range Rover into a pole.

His passenger, David Chaing, 24, was ejected and killed instantly.

Karafa, originally from Slovakia, was convicted of impaired driving, criminal negligence causing death and dangerous driving and sentenced to five years in prison. He was also banned from driving for 15 years.
