FL - Debra Striano, 55, murdered in her Lee County home, 24 July 2012
The state attorney’s office on Thursday released nearly 1,000 pages of evidence and witness statements in a 2012 San Carlos Park homicide.
Among information that came to light is that the victim, Debra Striano, 55, made a will the same day she was killed, and the beneficiary was her live-in boyfriend, Russell Myers. Also, a suspect in her death, Bill Ray Retherford, who was later shot and killed by deputies, was detained for questioning and released days before detectives say he killed again.
Dustin Jaye, 24, has been charged in the killing of Striano, who was found dead in her home on July 24. Her throat had been slit and her pet dog stabbed. Jaye has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and is awaiting trial............more at link......

From March 2014:
As the jury left to deliberate around noon Thursday, defendant Dustin Jaye flashed a thumbs-up to two of his supporters in a Lee County courtroom. But three hours later, as a clerk read the words that would put him behind bars for the rest of his life – guilty of first-degree murder, armed burglary and animal cruelty – Jaye showed no reaction.
Because the state is not seeking the death penalty, he will be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, the only alternate penalty...
Witnesses testified that the victim's live-in boyfriend, Russell Myers, had grown close to Jaye's sister Allison and was acting as her "sugar daddy" in the weeks before the crime. Allison Jaye said her brother believed Myers had a large amount of cash inside the home and wanted to rob him.
