State Indicts on Fort Myers First Degree Murder

Last week, the State Attorney's Office indicted Manuel DeJesus-Rosales on charges of first degree murder and attempted first degree murder in the stabbings of his daughter and grandson. This case has the hallmarks of a death penalty case, and the spokesperson for the Office announcd that it would be taken before the death penalty committee soon. I think it is a foregone conclusion that they will seek the death penalty, as they can allege that the capital felony was especially heinous, atrocious and cruel, cold calculated and premeditated, occured after a prior violent felony (contemporaneous crime on daughter), victim under twelve, and defendant in familial authority of victim. Five aggravators usually sows up the state's request for the ultimate penalty. It remains to be seen what kind of mitigation Mr. DeJesus- Rosales has, and whether they actually receive a death recommendation.
