Florida man facing death penalty over roommate's death

Murders take place for many reasons, some of which don't make much sense. In the heat of the moment, people often take steps they wouldn't otherwise, though. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in a case involving a Florida man who is accused of killing his roommate. The 22-year-old man was charged in Nov. 2018 for the death of the 24-year-old roommate who had allegedly stolen his PlayStation console.

Two roommates, a 21-year-old man and the 22-year-old man accused of killing the third roommate, allegedly lured him to a home stating that there was a party. Then, they stabbed him to death.

A new roommate returned home with a date when he discovered the two about to wrap the victim up in plastic bags to dispose of him. That roommate fled the scene and called 911 for assistance.

Paperwork claims that only one of the men stabbed the other, while the other decided not to participate in the plan at all. The 22-year-old man is the only one who could face the death penalty; The 21-year-old man is charged with the conspiracy to commit capital murder, accessory after the fact and tampering with evidence in comparison.

In cases involving a capital murder, it is very important that those accused get a chance to defend themselves and to protect their reputations. It's possible for the facts to get skewed and for the truth to become buried in allegations. An attorney's job is to protect those accused of such a heinous act and to protect them against unfair trials and bias in court. Everyone deserves to be heard and to remain innocent until fairly proven guilty.
