Arrest made in killing at north Tampa apartment complex

TAMPA — A Tampa man has been charged with killing a 33-year-old Palm Beach County man Tuesday at a north Tampa apartment complex, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

Demetrick Devaughn Anglin, 18, of 206 E Rampart St., was arrested and booked into Orient Road Jail on Tuesday night on felony murder and attempted robbery charges. Anglin, a student at Gary Adult High School, is being held without bail.

Deputies responded to a 911 call reporting gunshots just before 3 a.m. at the Avesta Apartments, 2016 E 131st Ave. At the complex south of E Fletcher Avenue, they found a white 1999 Lincoln Town Car backed into a parking space. The front doors and the trunk were open and the engine was running, but deputies saw no one nearby.

They then found a man lying in the courtyard with multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body. He was later identified as Kortney D. Jerry, 33, of Riviera Beach. During the investigation, deputies said, they learned that Anglin had conspired to rob Jerry.

Anglin was taken into custody by deputies at his home without incident and taken to the district office for questioning, sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter said. It is possible that others were involved in Jerry's killing, she added.

Anglin was dealing the stimulant drug known as molly to Jerry, according to Carter.

The murder charge is Anglin's second arrest in Florida, state records show. He was arrested by Tampa police in January 2011 on charges of burglary of an unoccupied dwelling and larceny.
