CHARLOTTE AMALIE – A St. Thomas man was taken into custody Thursday for the early morning murder of a 20-year-old man at a Coki Point beach bar in 2013.

Craig B. King of Anna’s Retreat was arrested at 9 p.m. October 1 based on an arrest warrant issued by the Superior Court for the murder of Jumore C. Lewis, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

Lewis was one of two people murdered after 2 a.m. on October 14 when several people gathered at the bar at Coki Point beach got into a fight and more than one person started shooting, the VIPD said.

Akilah Godet, 35, was also killed during the melee and a 23-year-old man from the British Virgin Islands was shot in the leg – receiving a non-life-threatening wound, according to police.

King was arrested without incident Thursday, police said. He was processed and remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending an Advice of Rights Hearing. His bail was set at $200,000.
