Man Pleads Guilty To Fatal Carjacking

BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A Tampa Bay area man has been convicted for murdering a teen during a carjacking.

A Hernando County jury found 21-year-old Steven Wesolek guilty Friday of first-degree murder, attempted murder, carjacking with a firearm and robbery with a deadly weapon. He faces a possible death sentence.

Authorities say 18-year-old Enrique Acevedo and then-18-year-old Skyler Collins were driving along a rural highway in June 2010 when they picked up Wesolek — along with his former girlfriend, 16-year-old Sabrina Dicus, and her mother, 40-year-old Sherrie Dicus.

Authorities say the three new passengers attacked Acevedo and Collins, fatally wounding Acevedo.

Sabrina Dicus was allowed to plead guilty to lesser charges last fall in exchange for testimony against Wesolek and her mother, who still awaits trial.
