24-year-old Luckenson Desrivieres, who has ties in Norristown and New Jersey, was arrested on Wednesday of last week at a home in Irvington, New Jersey, where members of the US Marshall’s Fugitive Task Force and local police found him hiding under a cardboard box in the basement. He was extradited back to Montgomery County on Saturday.
He is charged with first, second and third degree murder and other offenses in the deaths of 23-year-old Marc Estervine and 26-year-old Shamara Hill. They were found stabbed numerous times in a room they rented at an Arch Street home where the suspect also rented a room.
During the investigation detectives found that he went to a local pawn shop and sold a Dell laptop computer belonging to Estervine for 75 dollars.
