An accused shooter is charged in the deaths of two men in Florida after his daughter told her mother she witnessed the killings, according to Orange County Sheriff’s Office investigators.
Laureano “Larry” Romero’s arrest report indicates his daughter said she saw him shoot DeAngelo Cox, 22, and Nick Lewis, 21, on Tuesday.
Romero, 39, was arrested and faces two first-degree murder charges.
According to the report, the girl told her mother, “Daddy killed two black men.” Deputies said it was Romero’s mother who called authorities to report what her granddaughter said she saw.
Other witnesses apparently told deputies they saw Romero drive away from his Taft home after the shootings. He was using Cox’s Pontiac, according to the report.
"I can say there was a relationship between the suspect and the murder victims, that they had a prior relationship and that they were known to one another before this happened," said Orange County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Jane Watrel.
