Wanted man Arien Fahie has been charged by the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force for the murder of Corey Butler after being captured in the United States Virgin Islands and deported back to the territory.
Local police confirmed the arrest in a media release on Sunday after revealing that Fahie was officially charged on Saturday night.
The 26-year-old was slapped with an additional charge of robbery in the same incident that left Butler wounded in the Scatliffe Alley area in the early evening hours of Tuesday, June 21.
Butler was pronounced dead shortly after his arrival at the Dr. D. Orlando Smith Hospital.
Commissioner of Police Mark Collins commended his officers for their persistence in ensuring that the assailants in this murder were captured and charged.
He said, “Those who perpetrate crime in the Territory are not free because they have sailed beyond the jurisdiction. All efforts will be exhausted to find those responsible and bring justice in these cases.”
Arien Fahie will appear in Magistrate’s Court at the next avai
