Fla. man charged with murder

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — A 31-year-old Sarasota man has been arrested in connection with the recent slaying of a father of three.

Charles Hill was charged with first-degree murder Saturday and is being held without bond. Authorities said he shot 49-year-old James Brotherton on Nov. 21. Surveillance video shows the two at an ATM minutes before Hill allegedly shot him.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports that library surveillance camera caught the shooting and the suspect fleeing in Brotherton’s car with the trunk open.

A witness told the sheriff’s office he saw a car looking like Brotherton’s being driven by Hill.

The witness said Hill told him Brotherton started mouthing off and would not get in the trunk so Hill allegedly shot him.
