Police in Connecticut have arrested two teenagers and charged them with the New Year’s Day murder of a Missouri City man.
Investigators with the Stafford Police Department and the Texas Rangers identified Jessica Lynn Musante, 17, and Giuseppe Valentino Briguglio, 19, as suspects in the murder.
The body of 22-year-old Wilbert James Outlaw II of Missouri City was found in the breezeway of an apartment complex at 10498 Fountain Lake Drive in Stafford at 1:47 a.m. after officers responded to a report of shots fired.
Both Musante and Briguglio were taken into custody at 9:52 p.m. on Jan. 11 in Ansonia, Conn., where they await extradition. Briguglio is charged with murder and being a fugitive from justice and is being held with a $250,000 bond. Musante is charged with murder and is being held with a $100,000 bond. They were to have been arraigned on Jan. 12 in Connecticut.
Musante had been reported as a missing person, according to the Ansonia police. The arrests were the result of an investigation between the Stafford Texas Police Department, the Texas Rangers, and the Ansonia and Shelton (Conn.) police departments.
“We ordered the occupants out of the house over our (public address) system,” Lt. Patrick Lynch with the Ansonia Police Department told a local newspaper. “There was no weapon recovered in the (Stafford homicide) and we weren’t sure they were still armed.”
