Quacie Hart, the man who was wanted for the murder of Nicholas Francis, a 14-year-old student of Jamaica College, is now in police custody.

A reward of one million dollars had been offered for information leading to the capture of Hart, who had quickly risen towards the top of the police wanted list, given the national outcry sparked by the killing of the student during a reported robbery attempt on a bus while on his way from school on Wednesday.
