A Vermont Man Has Been Charged with Shooting and Killing a New Hampshire Couple

A guy from Vermont has been taken into arrest in connection with the homicide of a couple from New Hampshire, whose bodies were discovered dead in New Hampshire six months ago. Logan Levar Clegg, age 26, was taken into custody as a fugitive from justice on two counts of second-degree murder on Wednesday evening, according to a statement released by the Office of the Attorney General in the state of New Hampshire.

Clegg, who most recently resided in South Burlington, is being detained at the Northwest State Correctional Facility in St. Albans, Vermont. He has been held there since the 12th of October on an unrelated fugitive from justice allegation that originated in Utah.

His attorneys had filed appeals on Wednesday requesting a bail hearing in that matter, but those appeals were turned down by the Vermont Supreme Court. However, a Superior Court judge, deciding in a civil case, ordered that a hearing take place, therefore the hearing will take place.

According to the authorities, Stephen Reid, 67, and Djeswende Reid, 68, both of Concord, were shot to death on April 18 after leaving their apartment complex home to go for a stroll. Both of the Reids were found dead at the scene. The bodies of the two were discovered on April 21 in a swampy location off of the Broken Ground Trail.

In May, authorities in New Hampshire released a drawing of a guy they were considering a “person of interest” in connection with the killings of the couple. A detailed description of a person of interest in the slayings of Stephen and Djeswende Reid.

A little under a month later, the authorities made an appeal to the general public for assistance in identifying the driver or owner of a vehicle that had been photographed the previous day in a parking lot at the Marsh Loop trailhead on Portsmouth Road in Concord. The incident occurred on April 18.

According to the investigators, Clegg has been hiding out for the past 15 months and has even been outside of the nation. They claimed that he had already purchased a one-way ticket to Germany and was planning to depart the country two days after he was taken into custody.

According to the Attorney General’s Office, Clegg is scheduled to have his arraignment on the fugitive from justice allegation in Vermont on Thursday in the Franklin County Superior Court. After Clegg’s arraignment, the authorities will begin the process of trying to have him extradited to New Hampshire.
