Police Shooting Suspect Charged in Fourth Murder
July 11, 2010
TAMPA, Fla. — A man already facing three counts of murder – including two for the fatal shootings of Tampa police officers – has been charged with another killing.
The suspect, 24-year-old Dontae Morris, was charged with first-degree murder Friday for last month’s shooting death of Harold Wright.
Morris had been charged with first-degree murder Saturday for allegedly shooting Tampa police officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab during a traffic stop on June 29. He was also charged with a third count of first-degree murder for fatally shooting 21-year-old Derek Anderson in May.
On Thursday, a judge ordered that Courtnee Brantley, the woman who drove away after witnessing the two officers shot, be released from jail while awaiting trial.
