St. Vincent Man To Stand Trial In New York For Brutal Murder of High School Girl
The victim, Chanel Petro Nixon, vanished on Father’s Day 2006. Her body was found in a garbage bag four days later.
A grand jury has now indicted the 29-year-old Veron Primus, who was long suspected in her death.
Primus is formerly of Brooklyn. He was three years older than Nixon, and knew her from school and church, according to authorities.
The Brooklyn District Attorney will discuss the indictment at noon today.
The V.I. Free Press first reported on Primus’ case on May 9.
