    FL - Dr. Joseph Morrissey, 46, murdered in his Plantation home, 5 April 2010

    PLANTATION

    The murder of Nova Southeastern University Professor Joseph Morrissey was not a random act, police said Thursday.

    Plantation police spokesman Detective Robert Rettig said Thursday that a robber arrived at the Morrissey home in the 600 block of Northwest 75th Terrace just before midnight Monday, cut through a screen and came in through a window. The robber also took the couple to a nearby ATM and forced them at gunpoint to withdraw cash, Rettig said.


    seems they have a "person of interest"

    Tundidor son describes father as cold-blooded killer

    LANTATION— Moments after he stabbed his landlord to death, Randy W. Tundidor wanted more, according to a court transcript released Monday. He wanted to kill the man's wife and sleeping 5-year-old boy, too, according to his son.

    In an account that could be used to send him to Death Row, Tundidor, 44, is described as bloodthirsty, stabbing Nova Southeastern University professor Joseph Morrissey to death while ignoring the victim's pleas for mercy.

    Son testifies against father in Plantation murder

    Drug addled and strung out from lack of sleep, he witnessed his father repeatedly stab a Nova Southeastern University professor in the stomach and back, then slash his throat and set his Plantation house on fire, leaving the man’s wife and infant son in a bedroom to die, Randy H. Tundidor testified in court.

    “Honestly, I was hoping they were going to get out,’’ Randy H. Tundidor, 23, told prosecutors as he recounted the night in April 2010 when he and his father broke into the home of Joseph Morrissey, who was murdered.

    Spared the death penalty after taking part in the brutal home-invasion murder of a Nova Southeastern University professor two years ago, Randy H. Tundidor, 24, was sentenced Friday in a Broward courtroom to 40 years in prison...

    Tundidor testified in April during the first-degree murder trial of his father, Randy W. Tundidor, 46, that he thought they were going to the Plantation home of Joseph Morrissey, the elder Tundidor’s landlord, to scare him on the night of April 5, 2010...

    The younger Tundidor initially refused to implicate his father, but said he changed his mind after realizing that the elder Tundidor wanted to blame his sons for the crime.

    Death sentence upheld in murder of Nova Southeastern professor
    Randy W. Tundidor, who was sentenced to death for the 2010 murder of his landlord, Joseph Morrissey, will not be heading back to Broward for a new sentencing hearing, the Florida Supreme Court ruled Thursday.

    Tundidor, 50, was asking the court for a new sentencing hearing in light of last year’s upheaval of Florida’s death penalty law. In March, the legislature passed a new law mandating a jury’s unanimous recommendation to sentence a convicted killer to death.
