Prosecutors in court said it there are text messages to support that Janvier could have committed murder out of anger.

“Sometime in the three to fours weeks leading up to the murders, Mr. Janvier discovered that Ms. Emile was involved with a new individual and the evidence suggests that Mr. Janvier was upset by this,” said prosecutors.

Investigators at the time said they also found the gun that was used to kill the women in the apartment. A two-year-old was found alive in the apartment when police arrived at the scene.

According to the U.S. Marshal Service, Janvier could have fled Massachusetts shortly after the murders.

He was arrested in Haiti at the beginning of June.

“He looked like he didn’t give any care in the world and he acted like he was innocent and he didn’t commit a crime,” Miralda Emile, the victims’ sister said about seeing Janvier in court Friday.

“It’s been tough, but I’m glad that we are here today, I’m glad he’s caught,” she added. “Basically we just have to move forward to seek justice for my sisters.”
