A former Lewiston resident is one of two people arrested Wednesday morning in connection with a homicide in Cherryfield last week.

New York City Police arrested 37-year-old Carine Reeves and 19-year-old Quaneysha Greeley on 141st St. in the Laurelton section of Queens at about 8 a.m. Wednesday, according to a news release from the Maine State Police.

The pair is currently being held on fugitive from justice charges, and will be charged with murder upon their return to Maine.  Those charges are in connection with the death of 55-year-old Sally Shaw, whose body was found around dawn last Wednesday on Route 193 by a passing motorist.

Her abandoned rental car was found about 11 miles away with front end damage, at the intersection of Route 193 and Route 9.

The Maine Attorney General’s Office authorized murder charges against the two earlier this week, and four state police detectives drove to New York early Tuesday morning to coordinate the arrests with New York authorities.

Greeley is a former Lewiston resident.

The two are being held at Queen’s Central Booking and will make their first court appearance Thursday at the Queen’s County Criminal Courthouse.
