Twins Charged in Fla Murder; Body Put in Concrete
PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- Florida authorities have charged 31-year-old twin brothers with murdering a former Florida newspaper reporter whose body was found buried in concrete in Georgia.
Pensacola police said Friday that Christopher and William Cormier of Georgia also face armed robbery charges. Authorities say they killed 30-year-old Sean Dugas. Dugas worked for the Pensacola News Journal from 2005 to 2010.
Investigators say the twins were Dugas' house guests in Pensacola before they killed him on Aug. 27 and stole his belongs. That included a collection of cards for the game "Magic: The Gathering," valued at up to $100,000.
Dugas' body was found buried in concrete in the backyard of the twins' father's Georgia home. Police say Dugas died from a blow to his head.
The Cormiers are in jail in Georgia, but Florida authorities say they will be extradited.
