Police: Man killed cousin in dispute over woman

NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man charged with killing his cousin in Rhode Island during a dispute over a woman has waived rendition and been held on $1 million bond.

Louis Seignious, 31, of Norwich, appeared in court Monday in New London, Connecticut as a fugitive from justice. He will be returned to Rhode Island to face a murder charge in the Jan. 25 shooting death of his cousin, Vincent Sebastian, 28, in Westerly.

No defense attorney was listed in online court records.

Seignious fled after the shooting and was on the run until Saturday when he was arrested at an apartment complex in Groton, Connecticut.

The shooting occurred at an apartment where a woman with whom Seignious had a child lived, according to court records. That woman had started dating Sebastian, of Ledyard, Connecticut, police said.

Seignious has a criminal record in Connecticut including burglary and robbery convictions. He also has several cases pending.
