  • Jury selection began Monday morning in the first death penalty murder trial in Orange County since ninth circuit state attorney Aramis Ayala said she would not pursue that punishment. 29-year-old Juan Rosario faces execution for arson and first degree murder in the death of his 83-year-old neighbor Elena Ortega.
  • State Attorney Brad King says he will seek the death penalty for Markeith Loyd. King was assigned to the case by Governor Rick Scott after Orange and Osceola County prosecutor Aramis Ayala refused to seek the death penalty for Loyd or other cases in her jurisdiction.
