Just freed after completing a stretch in federal prison, a Hudson man was arrested by Pasco County authorities on suspicion of committing a murder in New Port Richey in 2001.
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.
In an historic verdict, a now-former Florida police officer was convicted last week of manslaughter and attempted murder for the fatal shooting of a stranded motorist in 2015.
