DA: Homicide suspect found hiding under box
NORRISTOWN, Pa. - July 16, 2012 (WPVI) -- Authorities in Montgomery County say a man being sought in the stabbing deaths of a man and woman last month in Norristown was arrested last week in New Jersey.
The Montgomery County District Attorney's office says 24-year-old Luckenson Desrivieres was arrested at a home in the 100 block of Myrtle Avenue in Irvington, New Jersey on Wednesday.
Desrivieres was allegedly hiding in the basement of the home beneath a cardboard box.
At the time of his arrest, the D.A. said, Desrivieres had changed his appearance by shaving his head and removing dreadlocks.
After Desrivieres' arrest he was housed in the Essex County Correctional Facility and was then extradited back to Montgomery County from New Jersey.
Desrivieres is accused of stabbing 26-year-old Shamara Hill and 23-year-old Marc Estiverne to death on Arch Street in Norristown on June 17th.
After the murders, the DA said, Desrivieres took Estiverne's laptop to a pawn shop and sold it for $75.
