ST. LUCIE COUNTY, Fla.-- In a case that has gone on for more than 25 years, a man convicted as a teenager of a murder on the Treasure Coast returned to court Thursday.
Judge Gary Sweet determined that Victor Brancaccio was not eligible to be resentenced in the killing of Mollie Mae Frazier in 1993 in Port St. Lucie. So his life sentence will stand on that conviction.
However, the judge did resentence Brancaccio to 40 years on a concurrent kidnapping charge, with a chance for parole after 25 years.
Brancaccio was 16 when he killed Frazier, who had criticized his rap music when he walked by her home.
