Two Arrested, Charged with Cherryfield Murder

By Sarah Craighead 



State Police have confirmed that a man and woman from New York City were arrested in New York and charged in connection with the homicide discovered in Cherryfield last month.

 Being held on fugitive-from-justice charges are 37-year-old Carine Reeves and 19-year-old Quaneysha Greeley.  The two were arrested by New York City Police on 141st Street in the Laurelton section of Queens. They are being held without bail. 

 The Portland Press Herald reported that both Reeves and Greeley are fighting extradition to Maine, where the attorney general’s office has authorized murder charges against them.

 They are charged in connection with the death of 55-year-old Sally Shaw, whose body was found alongside Rte. 193 in Cherryfield in the early morning hours of Wednesday, July 19. Police reported that the body was found by a passing motorist.

 Four State Police detectives drove to New York early Tuesday, July 25 to coordinate the arrests with NY authorities. 

 State Police linked Shaw’s body with a black 2017 Chevrolet Impala found to have been in an accident at the intersection of routes 193 and 9, approximately 13 miles from where Shaw’s body was found. The car had been rented in Bangor. It was removed to a crime lab in Augusta. 

 Greeley is a former Lewiston resident. The Portland Press Herald has also reported that the victim, Sally Shaw, was Facebook friends with Greeley, though it is not known how the two knew each other. State Police previously announced that Shaw was a home health care nurse, and that she is believed to have ties to Washington County. 

 An autopsy was completed by the state medical examiner on July 20, but police have not yet released the cause of death.
