BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A Bridgeport gang member already serving 17 years in prison for stabbing his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend in their Norwalk home faces new charges for allegedly seeking to have them “taken care of” so they couldn’t testify against him in an appeal.

The Connecticut Post (https://bit.ly/1kS80Bp) reports that 28-year-old Divenson Petion is charged with inciting injury to persons.

State police said Petion sent a letter to his current girlfriend providing her with information on the whereabouts of his two victims, where they work and what kind of car they drive. The letter allegedly urges her to get the information to another inmate about to be released.

Authorities say the letter says in part: “They must go ASAP!”

It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
