2 men accused of felonies after 3 people shot

Two men were recently arrested in connection with a triple murder in Florida. The murders were execution style, and each man faces multiple charges, including several felonies. Police said the person considered to be the mastermind of these murders is 35 years old.

Police identified the mastermind at a drug house -- the same drug house where three individuals passed away after being shot in the head. Police said a fourth person suffered a gunshot to his face. Authorities said they also located and took into custody a 26-year-old man who is the reported mastermind's half-brother.

Both of the men who were arrested have several prior arrests after having allegedly committed serious crimes. The men were booked in a county jail on a Thursday night on both robbery and murder charges. The alleged mastermind also faces charges of possessing a firearm while being a felon as well as tampering in a capital proceeding involving felony life. The half-brother additionally faces charges of possessing ammunition while being a felon along with tampering with evidence. Police said they were looking for three other individuals tied to the alleged drug killings.

If appropriate, the criminal defense for each of the two men might consider pursuing negotiations for a plea deal with prosecutors. A plea deal might lead to a more lenient sentence for the defendant compared with what would normally be imposed after a guilty verdict at trial. Both individuals have the right to go to trial, where the prosecution is forced to prove the charges for felonies using evidence that meets the criminal justice system's specific requirements in the state of Florida.
