A Tampa Bay area man has been sentenced to death for fatally stabbing a woman in her home. A Pasco County judge sentenced Derral Wayne Hodgkins on Friday. He was convicted in August 2011 of first-degree murder.
ORLANDO — Two men charged with murder in the deaths of two teenagers whose bodies were found engulfed in flames along a central Florida trail have been denied bond.
Jesse Brandon Davis and Hector Manuel Rodriguez made their first appearance before a judge on Saturday.
Both men have been charged with first-degree murder and kidnapping in the deaths of 16-year-old Nicholas Presha and 18-year-old Jeremy Stewart in April.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office says the teens met the men with the intention of selling them two stolen handguns. Investigators say they were robbed and shot to death.
Davis was arrested last month on unrelated charges. Rodriguez was arrested on Friday.
