“Troy Police Detectives have worked many long hours on this difficult and complex case. With the assistance of other law enforcement partners from Federal, State, County, the NYPD and the Massachusetts State Police, two suspects have been taken into custody for the senseless and tragic death of this young life.
“Earlier today, a cadre of detectives and partners traveled to New York City where they located and arrested Idelisse N. Armstead of Brooklyn. Armstead was transported by TPD Detectives to the Troy Police Station for processing and is currently lodged in the Rensselaer County Jail. She will appear in Rensselaer County Court at a later date. While that was occurring, Detectives and partners also traveled to Boston, MA to locate and arrest the second suspect – Antwaun Twitty of Burlington, VT. Twitty was taken into custody at Logan International Airport and will be lodged in Massachusetts while awaiting extradition to New York.
“The Troy Police Department wishes to thank the many law enforcement partners that have also logged many hours of work in helping to bring the killers of Beyonce Wint to justice. The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call Troy Police Detectives.”
Both Defendants are charged with Murder 2nd degree.
