Janvier found guilty in 2011 double-murder of Emile sisters

Jean Weevins Janvier

A Suffolk Superior Court jury has convicted a 36 year-old man who murdered two sisters inside their Harlem Street apartment in 2011. Jean Weevins Janvier fled to Haiti after the double-homicide and was eventually captured by Haitian police and US Marshals in 2017. He will be sentenced tomorrow by Judge Jeffrey Locke.

Janvier was on the US Marshals' 15 Most Wanted List prior to his arrest. He was indicted in 2012 for the murders of Stephanie and Judith Emile in their Harvard Street apartment. The two women were found shot to death with a two-year old toddler nearby unharmed.

Janvier is a US citizen. He was caught by Haitian police in Santo, Haiti at his mother's house. He was extradited after being held by Haitian police, who offered "exceptional performance" in capturing Janvier, according to a statement by US officials.
