A Lexington man has been found in Canada and charged with murder in the fatal shooting of his girlfriend.
Vincent Thomas Shivers, 50, was apprehended in Canada Thursday evening by members of the Toronto Police Fugitive Squad as he boarded a plane bound for London at the Toronto Pearson International Airport.
“Investigators determined Shivers was not missing Thursday and that he had fled the country into Canada Tuesday near Niagara Falls,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said in a release Friday night. “U.S. Marshals, the Toronto Police Fugitive Squad and the Canada Border Services Agency collaborated to take Shivers into custody shortly before his flight was due to take off. These federal and international partners provided us with invaluable assistance on this case.”
Shivers is being held by authorities in Canada pending legal proceedings.
Shiver has been reported missing after co-workers asked deputies to check in on him at his house in the 200 block of Carriage Hill Court, Lexington, south of Lake Murray. There, deputies discovered the body of 45-year-old Roselynn W. Cedeno, according to Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher, who had been shot several times.
