Two arrested in New York to be charged with murder of woman found in Cherryfield

Two suspects have been arrested in connection with the death of 55-year-old Sally Shaw, whose body was found a week ago in Cherryfield.

Carine Reeves, 37, and Quaneysha Greeley, 19, were arrested in New York City on Wednesday morning by local police and charged in connection with Shaw’s death, according to a press release from Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

Greeley is a former Lewiston resident, having lived there as recently as a few years ago, McCausland said Wednesday by phone.

The two individuals were arrested on 141st Street in the Laurelton section of Queens around 8 a.m.

“Both will be charged with murder when they are brought back to Maine,” McCausland wrote in the press release.

The Maine Attorney General’s office authorized murder charges against Greeley and Reeves earlier this week, McCausland said. Four state police detectives drove to New York City on Tuesday to coordinate the arrests with local authorities.

Both are being held on fugitive from justice charges at Queens Central Booking and will make their first court appearance Thursday at the Queens County Criminal Courthouse.

“There are a great deal of investigative details that we’re not talking about publicly at this point,” including “motive and cause of death,” McCausland said.

Shaw’s body was found around dawn last Wednesday on Route 193 by a passing motorist. Her abandoned rental car was found about 11 miles away with front end damage, at the intersection of Route 193 and Route 9.
