In 1989, Valerio was convicted of the charges in the Worcester Superior Court and while he was out on bail awaiting sentencing, he fled to the Dominican Republic.
State Police Troopers assigned to the Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section (VFAS) recently developed information as to Valerio's current whereabouts and in a joint effort with the Worcester County District Attorney's office, were able to provide the information to United States Marshal's Service, who were able to apprehend Valerio in the Dominican Republic.
Valerio is currently being held in the Dominican Republic by the US Marshal's Service and he will be extradited to Massachusetts for sentencing at a future date.
