Triple-slaying suspect is returned to Boston

Pierre extradited from Trinidad

After years of fighting extradition, a man accused of a 2009 triple slaying in Dorchester who had fled to Trinidad has been returned to Boston to face murder charges.

Keron Pierre, 27, will be arraigned Monday in Suffolk Superior Court on charges of shooting and killing Shacora Gaines, a 20-year-old Brockton mother of two; her friend Chantal Palmer, 20, also a mother from Brockton; and Anthony Peoples, 19, of Boston on March 29, 2009. About 18 months after the killings, Pierre was arrested in Trinidad on unrelated drug charges, authorities said. In January 2010, he was indicted on charges related to the Dorchester case.
