The Latest RV Park and Campground Briefs
From CBS News, Miami:
A Broward County jury has returned a mixed verdict in the trial of a woman accused of not protecting her children during her husband’s murderous rampage last February at a Deerfield Beach RV park.
Deanna DeJesus was charged with aggravated manslaughter and child neglect in connection with the bloody standoff between her husband William De Jesus and Broward Sheriff’s deputies.
After just a few hours of deliberations, the jury announced it was hung on the charge of aggravated manslaughter, but did convict DeJesus of child neglect. The charge carries a maximum of 15 years in jail.
Prosecutor Gregg Rossman said his main goal is to make sure DeJesus has no more contact with her surviving son. Rossman said, ”Whatever timeframe it takes to make sure she can have no further contact with this child or cause this child any harm that would be sufficient for me.”
