More monkeyshines from our dark-skinned friends.
One of these days, they might actually pull off a home robbery without killing someone.
A 24-year-old Ocala man was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree murder in connection with a March 25, 2015, armed home invasion that resulted in the death of a 30-year-old man.
According to Marion County Sheriff’s Office documents, Brandon Exzavier Dawson was arrested at 5:22 a.m. Monday on an August 2018 bench warrant signed by Judge Willard Pope.
A grand jury indictment charges Dawson in the killing of Robert Jason Wilson and the burglary of a dwelling with a firearm.
Dawson is the second person arrested in the case.
An April 1, 2015, MCSO press release states that Tykheem Weldon, then a juvenile, now 20, was arrested and charged in the home invasion and murder of Wilson following an investigation. Weldon told detectives he and two other suspects entered a home in the 8000 block of Southeast 88th Place through a window and went to Wilson’s bedroom and the bedroom of a person who survived “and opened fire,” killing Wilson.
Weldon was indicted for first-degree felony murder and burglary of a dwelling with a firearm and was charged as an adult, according to an April 21, 2018, Star-Banner article. Florida Department of Corrections records indicate he was sentenced to prison in July 2018. His release date is shown as March 2025.
