Fugitive indicted in slaying of Dorchester sisters last year

A Suffolk County Grand Jury has indicted a former Boston man in the Nov. 2011 double-murder of two Haitian-American sisters who were gunned down in their Dorchester apartment last November. The suspect, Jean Weevins Janvier, 30, has been on the run since the homicides and authorities say that they believe he's fled the country.

Prosecutors say that Janvier had been in a previous romantic relationship with Stephanie Emile, 21, who was found shot to death alongside her sister, Judith, 23, in their Harlem Street apartment on Nov. 14, 2011.

“We believe this defendant fled the charges and the country in the aftermath of Judith’s and Stephanie’s murders,” District Attorney Daniel Conley said in a statement. “We’re currently working with Boston Police, the US Marshal’s Service, and other law enforcement agencies to apprehend him and return him to face justice in a Suffolk County courtroom.”

Conley urged victims of any crime, including intimate partner violence, to call 911 in an emergency. SafeLink, a statewide domestic violence hotline, can be reached at 877-785-2020.
