Looking to fly to Cuba from New Jersey? Not so fast.
Gov. Chris Christie has requested that all airline routes between Newark Liberty International Airport and Cuba be barred until escaped fugitive Joanne Chesimard, who is currently living on the island, is transferred back to the United States, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Chesimard was convicted for killing a New Jersey state trooper in 1973 but escaped custody and was granted political asylum in Cuba.
