A man and woman from New York were arrested Wednesday morning in connection with the death of a woman in Cherryfield last week.

Carine Reeves, 37, and Quaneysha Greeley, 19, both of New York City, are being held on fugitive from justice charges, Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, said in a Wednesday news release.

The two were arrested by New York police at about 8 a.m. on 141st Street in the Laurelton section of Queens.

Reeves and Greeley will both be charged with murder when they are brought back to Maine, McCausland said.

They're accused in the death of Sally Shaw, 55, whose body was found alongside Route 193 in Cherryfield last Wednesday.

Greeley is a former Lewiston resident.

The two are being held at Queens Central Booking and will make their first court appearances Thursday in Queens County Criminal Court.
