Florida man accused of stabbing man to death during tree-house robbery
Woman's throat cut during crime, officials say
KEY WEST, Fla. – Florida authorities arrested a man after police said he stabbed a man to death during a robbery in a tree house.
The Keynoter reported that Wednesday's incident stemmed from a crack cocaine deal, and a woman's throat was cut during the crime.
Monroe County sheriff's deputies said the victim, Mathew Bonnett, 59, was at a home inside a trailer park and tried to help a neighbor who was being robbed by two masked men. Bonnett wasn't involved in the drug deal, officials said, but was trying to be a good Samaritan.
Officials said the female victim lived in a tree house in the trailer park.
Rory Hank Wilson, 49, was charged with murder and robbery. He is being held at the Monroe County Jail.
