New York City Man Arrested For Maine Murders
A New York City man wanted in connection with the shooting deaths of two men in Biddeford in the summer of 2014 was arrested Monday in New York City.
State Police say Fuquan Prince Wilson, 36, is charged with two counts of murder and a single charge of possessing a firearm by a prohibited person.
Fuquan was wanted in connection for the shootings of Russell Lavoie, 42, and Jeffrey Lude, 37, inside an apartment house at 19 Western Ave. in Biddeford on July 6, 2014. Six others were in the apartment at the time of the shooting, and five were located and questioned.
Fuquan, who went by the street name “P”, disappeared after the shooting and State Police later released his photo and his description to the public. Fuquan originally was wanted for the firearms charge, but the murder charges were added last month following the grand jury action.
He was arrested early Monday morning by the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force in the Bronx. He was being held at the Manhattan Detention Center and extradition proceedings will begin to return him to Maine.
