Three people arrested on federal drug charges will remain in prison

BURLINGTON – Three people arrested on federal drug charges as part of an investigation into the fatal shooting of an Orleans County woman found in the Missisquoi River in Troy last week, will remain in prison, a federal judge ruled Tuesday. Meanwhile the investigation into the death of Kayla Wright, 29, of Derby, who was shot multiple times and at least once in the head, continues. Jakiy Tramaine-Corey Keith, 24, appeared in U.S. District Court in Burlington for his detention hearing on Tuesday afternoon. Defense lawyer Chandler Matson of Stowe said his client, also known as “AB” would not contest the detention request by the government. Magistrate Judge Kevin Doyle set a probable cause hearing for Feb. 22 on the criminal complaint filed by U.S. Homeland Security Investigations in Derby. Earlier in the afternoon, Thomas P. Rooney, 34, and his wife, Bryanna F. Rooney, 29, both of Vermont 100 in Troy, appeared in federal court for their joint detention hearing.
