Crenshaw's Back In CT

After almost five months on the run, authorities know where to find Darryl Crenshaw and it does not look like he is going anywhere soon.

He is being held on $2.5 million, accused of killing Ashley Peoples, 22, of Enfield.

As a clean-shaven Crenshaw appeared before a judge Tuesday, Peoples' mother, Patricia Baskerville, shook and wept. 

She and other family members and friends of the victim filled at least two rows of the Enfield courtroom. Supporters of Crenshaw were also present.

Crenshaw was arrested earlier this month in Mexico after an inmate being held in a Florida jail saw him on America's Most Wanted.  The inmate told authorities he'd been jailed with Crenshaw in Mexico, who was being held under an assumed name on unrelated charges.

Crenshaw is accused of kidnapping and strangling Peoples when she tried to end their relationship.

Her body was found in his Church Street apartment just a few days after witnesses told Hartford police she was missing and that Crenshaw had taken her against her will.

Crenshaw also faces kidnapping charges in Hartford. He is due in a Hartford court on Feb. 3 on those charges.
