Neighbor finds body of Stanley Yassen


OCKLAWAHA, Fla. – A 33-year-old man tracked down in Georgia was arrested on murder charges in the stabbing death of a 74-year-old Marion County man.

Issac Sheffield was arrested on first-degree murder charges in the death of Stanley Yassen.

Last month, a neighbor found Yassen's naked body inside his Ocklawaha home.

A newly released report said Yassen was beaten in the head and stabbed at least 9 times.

Sheffield will be returned to Marion County to face charges.
