Death penalty for Florida delivery man accused of setting older woman on fire. A twenty-one-year-old man who has been charged with first-degree murder is facing a possible death penalty. Jorge Luis Dupre Lachazo is charged for murdering a seventy-five-year-old woman by beating her and setting her on fire in her home in Florida.
Prosecutors are seeking a death penalty for Lachazo, who worked as a delivery man.
On Monday, the State Attorney’s Office from Palm Beach County Court has filed a notice, seeking the death penalty for the twenty-one-year-old.
According to police records, Lachazo entered the home of the victim when he and another man were delivering appliances (a washer and a dryer) back in August.
Once the appliances were installed, the other delivery man left. He reported that he heard screaming just a few minutes later. The screaming made him go back to the victim’s home, where he found her on the floor. He called the police immediately.
Dupre Lachazo tried to escape the crime scene, driving off in the delivery truck, but shortly after, a police officer stopped him.
So far, police have not reported the media for any motive for the murder.
