    FL - Edward Bozarth, 62, Key Largo, 16 June 2007


    The wife of a 62-year-old man found murdered aboard his boat in Key Largo’s Gilbert’s Resort marina in 2007 was arrested Thursday for allegedly killing her husband for his inheritance, Monroe County Sheriff’s announced, KeysNet.com is reporting.

    Deputies say Denise Bozarth, 39, was taken into custody in Walton County in the Florida Panhandle . She will be returned to the Florida Keys to face charges, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said.

    Monroe County State Attorney Dennis Ward said a grand jury will be convened in the case, and Denise Bozarth is facing a first-degree murder charge.

    Edward Bozarth was found dead on July 1, 2007, in the starboard engine compartment of his boat, the Screw U 2, docked at Gilbert’s Resort.

    He lived on the boat with Denise Bozarth and their two children.

    The motive for the killing: The $650,000 Edward Bozarth had just inherited from his mother.

    "Denise Bozarth had told several people about her husband's inheraitance and how she would be the beneficiary if he died," said Herrin. "We verified that was true."

    Denise Bozarth, 42, was sentenced to 14 years in prison last April after pleading guilty to second-degree murder. She confessed to bludgeoning to death Edward Bozarth, who was 62, and stuffing his plastic-wrapped corpse in the engine room of his sailboat, the Screw U 2...

    Her friends told detectives that Denise had talked about killing her husband before, and she reportedly try to hire a former boyfriend to do the deed. Detectives say Denise expected to come into $650,000 that her husband had inherited from his mother shortly before he was killed.
