Clem Beauchamp in custody, awaiting trial

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Clem Beauchamp, the Delray Beach man charged in the slayings of his former girlfriend and her two children, is in custody at Palm Beach County Jail Wednesday and could face trial as early as February 27, according to court documents.

Beauchamp was booked into the jail at 6:46 p.m. Tuesday after previously being held in a federal facility in Virginia where he was appealing a 10-year prison term he received for possessing an illegal handgun silencer.

Beauchamp was indicted in September on three first-degree murder charges in connection with the deaths of Felicia Brown, of West Palm Beach, and her two children, Jermaine McNeil, 10, and Ju'Tyra Allen, 6.

The children were found stuffed in suitcases in a Delray Beach canal in March. Brown was found at a landfill last year.
