Florida Man Accused in Double Murder Gets 10 Years in Jail

Man accused with double murder

In Ocala, Florida, a co-defendant who was charged in connection with a double homicide pleaded to no contest to lesser charges last Friday. In exchange, he agreed to testify against the fourth and final remaining defendant in the homicide case.

Twenty-eight year old Carlose Arrellano was originally charged with two counts of first-degree murder. However, after pleading no contest to being an accessory after the fact to the first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder (both considered first-degree felonies), the native of Mexico was sentenced to a decade in the Florida Department of Corrections and another ten years of probation.

Court records show that Arrellano was arrested in Chicago earlier this summer and extradited to Florida where he was formally charged. Authorities believe that the December, 2001 double murder was a drug-related homicide.

William is an amazing lawyer on the first day he took my case from a felony to a misdemeanor. He always answered my calls and text messages, never a problem. He was always the one in court not sending someone else, unlike my last lawyer. 10/10 would recommend. If I ever have any other problems, he will be the first person I call. Shane B.
