    A “15 Most Wanted” fugitive wanted in connection with the 2002 murders of his sister and ex-girlfriend was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Bridgeport Tuesday.

    Fifty-four-year-old Andre Neverson, a native of Trinidad and Tobago, is accused in the 2002 murder of his sister and ex-girlfriend in New York, and for a parole violation and an illegal entry into the United States, according to the U.S. Marshal’s office.

    Investigators allege that Neverson shot his sister in the head and stomach on July 8, 2002. The next day, he allegedly kidnapped a former girlfriend, who was found dead two days later with a head wound. At the time of the killings, he was paroled by the state of New York for attempted murder, first-degree assault and criminal possession of a firearm.

    Several months later, on Nov. 6, 2002, Neverson allegedly went into the home of yet another ex-girlfriend to try to visit his daughter, but he ran off when the woman's brother walked in unexpectedly, authorities said.

    Neverson was located hiding in a home on the 600 block of Ogden Street in Bridgeport around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday.

    “The United States Marshals Service is extremely pleased to have a violent criminal, who murdered two women in New York, off the streets of Connecticut after 16 years on the run,” said U.S. Marshal Brian Taylor, District of Connecticut in a statement.

    Neverson was added to the "15 Most Wanted Fugitives" list in February 2004. He is expected to be transferred back to New York City.
