Suspect Nabbed in Boynton Basketball Killing

Kudos to the witnesses who stepped forward in the murder case of Junior Cesar. The Boynton Beach Police Department acted on witness tips to arrest Suprinet Augustin, 22. He allegedly confronted Cesar during a basketball game at Pence Park, pistol-whipped him, then shot Cesar three times. Another 22-year-old, Jakenson St. Hilaire, allegedly drove Augustin from the scene in a 1996 Ford Mustang. He's been charged with accessory to murder.

According to the arrest affidavit, St. Hilaire gave a statement to police corroborating witness statements, adding that Augustin phoned Cesar before the shooting and arranged the meeting in the park.
