The family of a Bridgeport murder victim told News 12 that they are grateful that justice has been served for their loved one.
As News 12 has previously reported, James McClain was fatally stabbed on Norman Street near Went Field Park in March.
Police say Laquan Victoria lured McClain to the park where he stabbed the man and stole his cash and wallet.
Police say Victoria had McClain’s debit cards on him when he was taken into custody.
In addition to that murder, Victoria is also charged with a non-fatal stabbing and robbery of a female victim in the same neighborhood.
McClain’s cousin, Dawn McClain, says she is relieved that authorities caught the suspect.
“Sometimes it takes you forever to find a murderer, or you just never find a murderer,” Dawn McClain says. “Seeing that this man had tried to attempt that a week before on someone else, I’m glad that he’s off the streets.”
Victoria faces charges for first-degree murder and robbery.
His bond is placed at $350,000.
