A St. Thomas woman thought to have harbored murder suspect Isaac Austrie while he was on the run from police was arrested earlier this week and charged as an accessory after the fact.
Austrie, who was wanted for the murder of Mao Penha, died 12 days ago after being involved in a shootout with police. The officers had tracked him to an apartment in Smith Bay. According to a V.I. Police Department news release, the apartment was in the name of Nabriska Pennyfeather, 23, who was said to be involved in a “romantic relationship” with Austrie.
Pennyfeather was arrested at approximately 11 a.m. Tuesday and her bail was set at $5,000. She has been remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending further court action.
