Arrest made in 2011 death of Apopka man

Deputies charge Daniel Craven with 1st degree murder


APOPKA, Fla. – Orange County deputies said on Friday they have made an arrest in the 2011 murder of an Apopka man.

Daniel Craven has been arrested on first-degree murder charges in the death of Ronald Justice, 31, in 2011. Justice was not reported missing until more than a year after he was last seen alive.

Deputies said Craven killed Justice on April 6, 2011 at the Adirondack address and then took his body to 643 Slote Drive, where he burned the victim's body in the back yard in a fire pit.   

Justice's bones were later found buried in the backyard of the Slote Drive home but investigators believe Craven killed Justice somewhere else and then brought his body to the Slote Drive home.

Craven was arrested in Goldsboro, NC and will be extradited to Orange County jail.
