Richard Parris, 39, of Roxbury, is charged with the Aug. 27 stabbing death of Sheldon Andrews, 27, on Geneva Avenue in Dorchester.
Parris was arrested in Kingston Airport after getting off an Air Jamaica flight from Atlanta, but before he could board another flight for Barbados, the Suffolk County DA's office and Boston Police say. In a statement, DA Dan Conley said:
Let this be a message to anyone who would use deadly violence on our streets. We will spare no effort to identify you and we will travel any distance to catch you.
Officials charge the two men got into a fight before Parris went for a knife. Parris now faces a rendition hearing in Jamaica to determine if he can be sent back to Boston to face arraignment in Dorchester District Court.
