A Suffolk grand jury returned indictments on Friday charging a man – who authorities believe has fled the country - with the 2011 shooting deaths of two sisters in their Dorchester apartment, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said.

Jean Weevins Janvier, 30, whose last known address is in Dorchester, is charged with two counts of first degree murder in the Nov. 14 deaths of Judith Emile, 23, and her sister, Stephanie Emile, 21, according to Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office. Janvier is also being charged with unlawful possession of a firearm.


Janvier was previously involved in a romantic relationship with Stephanie Emile, prosecutors said.

“We believe this defendant fled the charges and the country in the aftermath of Judith’s and Stephanie’s murders,” Conley said in a statement. “We’re currently working with Boston Police, the US Marshal’s Service, and other law enforcement agencies to apprehend him and return him to face justice in a Suffolk County courtroom.”
