Jean Jacques is accused of killing a young woman after he was released from prison where he was serving time for a previous murder.
News sources indicate Jacques was released because his file was marked, “Detainer: Immigration.”
Once integrated back into society authorities believe he became involved in illegal activities that led to the June 15, 2015 stabbing death of 25-year-old Casey Chadwick.
Reports say Chadwick's body was stuffed in a closet. Jacques lived in the apartment prior to his earlier imprisonment. It was not clear if he lived with Chadwick at the time, or if she occupied his former apartment.
His crimes also included the illegal use of a gun during a 1996 deadly shooting, qualifying him for deportation to his native Haiti, the newspaper reported. ICE spokesman Shawn Neudauer told the newspaper federal privacy laws prohibit him from discussing Jacques’ case.• Before you dismiss Chadwick's life as just another homicide statistic, ask yourself why your life is worth more than her life, why the lives of your loved ones are worth more than her life, or, for that matter, why Barack Obama's life is worth more than the lives of young women killed due to his insane immigration and deportation policy.

A Haitian immigrant who was released from prison in January after serving a sentence for attempted murder is back in custody on a murder charge in the death of a Connecticut woman last month.
The Bulletin reported that Jean Jacques’s prison file was marked “Detainer: Immigration” and that Connecticut officials say he was released in January to the custody of the U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
His crimes also included the illegal use of a gun during a 1996 deadly shooting, qualifying him for deportation to his native Haiti, the newspaper reported. ICE spokesman Shawn Neudauer told the newspaper federal privacy laws prohibit him from discussing Jacques’ case.
On Monday, the 40-year-old Jacques was in New London Superior Court to answer to murder and drug charges, stemming from the June 15 stabbing death of Casey Chadwick at her apartment in Norwich, the city where Jacques lived before he went to prison. The 25-year-old woman’s body was found stuffed in a closet.
Jacques was brought in a wheelchair after he refused to enter the courtroom willingly. He also kept his eyes closed, refused to respond to court officials, and would not talk to a Creole interpreter or one of his public defenders.
Superior Court Judge Hillary Strackbein kept bail at $1 million on the murder charge and appointed two public defenders to represent Jacques. He is to appear in court again in August.
An arrest warrant says Chadwick’s boyfriend found her dead and also told police some drugs were missing from the apartment, The Day reported. Norwich police arrested Jacques for a drug sale and he later was also charged with Chadwick’s death.
The Bulletin reported that at his June 25 arraignment in Norwich Superior Court, Judge Kevin McMahan said: “You had a murder conviction and you weren’t deported? OK.”
Norwich Police Chief Louis Fusaro Sr. said it was discomforting that Jacques wasn’t deported after his prison release.
“We have a victim of a homicide in the meantime, and it’s a shame,” Fusaro said. “It’s pretty obvious if he was deported this wouldn’t have happened.”
After he was released from prison, Jacques got a job working at an East Lyme restaurant as a cook and dishwasher.
