HERNANDO, Florida. Florida authorities claim a man stabbed his ex-girlfriend with a sword and then hit her with his truck.
The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release that MPs found 42-year-old Brandi Blevins dead in her front yard on Sunday evening.
Detectives said 41-year-old Eric Huffman stabbed Blevins to death with a large sword. The sheriff’s office said a witness told them that after Huffman stabbed Blevins to death, he jumped in his truck and ran over the victim before crashing into a tree. He escaped, but was later captured. It was unclear what exactly killed Blevins.
Huffman is charged with premeditated murder and aggravated assault with deadly weapons. He’s in jail without bail.
His first appearance in court was scheduled for Monday. The court records did not indicate whether he had a lawyer.
