The main of a volunteer fireplace office in Florida is accused of fatally taking pictures a company proprietor because the target owed him income, authorities said. Brian Keith Easterling, 52, was taken into custody earlier Monday at his household in Holt, Florida and is awaiting extradition from the close by county of Okaloosa, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Business mentioned.
He was billed with premeditated murder, the sheriff’s office environment explained in a news release.
Easterling is chief of the Baker Fireplace District, a volunteer hearth section in the Florida Panhandle. The Baker Hearth District’s assistant main Mark McKenzie mentioned Easterling was suspended and he would assume Easterling’s job.
McKenzie said Easterling has volunteered for the district for virtually 20 many years, and had been serving as the chief for 10, WKRG reported.
The 63-12 months-old store operator, who was not discovered by officers, was identified shot to dying within his business enterprise in Pensacola.
Surveillance movie from the store captured the killing, the sheriff’s office environment mentioned.
WKRG described that Okaloosa deputies assisted the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office environment by serving a warrant to Easterlings’ dwelling late Sunday night. Deputies can be listened to buying the occupants of a house to “exit the home with your palms in the air.”
Easterling went into custody without the need of incident, the station noted.
