LAKE WORTH, Fla.  — The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said they have arrested a man in connection with a Lake Worth homicide that stemmed over the sale of a television.

PBSO said Ismael Reyes Cabrera, 32, was found shot to death around 4 p.m. Tuesday in the 1000 block of S. K St.

Robert Nunn, 27, was arrested on Wednesday, accused of using counterfeit money to buy pre-loaded Visa cards and going on a shopping spree in Royal Palm Beach.

Police said Nunn arrived at the victim's home to buy the man’s television for about $400. Neighbors later told investigators they heard gunshots around the same time.

Ballistic testing on Thursday tied Nunn to the fatal shooting.

He faces several fraud-related charges and a first-degree murder charge.
