CHELSEA, Vt. (WCAX) - Police say the man accused in a drug-related shooting in Brookfield back in May has been extradited to Vermont.

Vermont State Police brought Devon Dennis, 43, of Hartford, Connecticut, back to Vermont where he is set to face a Judge Friday in Orange County Court.

Dennis is charged with one count of second-degree murder connected to the May 12th fatal shooting of Juan Sierra, 27, of Springfield, Massachusetts, and another count of attempted second-degree murder in the shooting of Miguel Fuentes, 29, also of Springfield.

It happened at a home on Route 14. Police have said both Sierra and Fuentes had a record of drug trafficking and that the Brookfield shooting was drug-related.

Officers arrested Dennis in July at JFK Airport after he fled to Jamaica just one day after the shooting.
