Cash Feenz Killers Resentenced to Life in Prison

Ashley Toye and Roderick Washington, who were under 18 at the time they took part in the torture and murder of Alexis and Jeffrey Sosa, were back in court yesterday for resentencing. The Supreme court ruled in 2012 inĀ Miller v. Alabama, that mandatory life sentences for juveniles were not proper under the Constitution. Florida passed a new law providing for new sentences for such criminals, and Toye and Washington are among the first to be sentenced under the new law. The judge could have sentenced them to less time, but declined to do so based on the facts of the case that included false imprisonment and torture before the victims were shot. They will have a chance to have their sentences reviewed after 25 years, another provision of the new law that has yet to be tested.


Cape Coral Man Arrested for Killing Alligator in his Yard

Paul Trimble

Cape Coral resident Paul Trimble hooked an alligator in a canal behind his backyard, and is in jail for killing the animal. Apparently, he beat it to death with a bat and a shovel. When questioned by officers, he admitted to the offense, and said he had done it before, because he didn’t know it was illegal. Unfortunately for him, as they say, ignorance of the law is no excuse. He’s facing a felony charge for killing an Alligator, and could end up facing animal cruelty charges as well, based on news reports.
