Man facing murder charge after shooting death in Florida

Serious criminal allegations are no laughing matter. When accused of a crime such as murder, time and information may be of the essence. Many individuals may never have dreamed that they could end up facing such a serious charge, but now they must deal with the situation as effectively as possible. Though it may seem daunting, parties do have options for combating allegations.

One man in Florida may feel confused and anxious after recently being charged in a murder case. Reports stated that police had responded to a home at which a woman had been shot in the head. The man -- who was reportedly in a relationship with the woman -- allegedly told police that someone had broken into the home and shot the woman. However, police believe that the man committed the crime and only made it appear as if a break-in had occurred.

The man purportedly sent text messages meant for someone else to a detective working on the case. The messages reportedly indicated that the man feared being arrested. Authorities also believe that information given by the man about the incident does not coincide with evidence at the scene. The man was taken into custody on allegations of murder, and he purportedly commented that he may have killed the woman.

The man also made statements indicating that he may be mentally unwell as he had been experiencing blackouts. This type of information could potentially play into the man's criminal defense against the murder charge. In order to determine how to possibly best use such information and how to take advantage of other defense options, he may wish to gain reliable information from local Florida legal resources.
