Deputies: Man charged with murder in Lutz stabbing released from hospital, arrested

A Tampa man who deputies said stabbed his ex-wife's boyfriend and himself was moved from a hospital to the Pasco County jail late Wednesday.

Erick Von Reinhart, 43, was charged with second-degree murder in the June 19 death of Alex Iliff, 33. Deputies said Reinhart entered his ex-wife's home at 24941 Oakhaven Court in Lutz and stabbed Iliff during a struggle. Reinhart then turned the knife on himself, deputies said.

His wife, Amy, and her sister were also home at the time and called 911.

Reinhart was airlifted to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he spent more than a week recovering from self-inflicted wounds to his neck and abdomen. Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies arrested him on a warrant when he was discharged from the hospital. He was being held in Land O'Lakes in lieu of $1,000,000 bail.

A jail booking photo shows Reinhart wearing what looks like a white bandage under his shirt. A Pasco County Sheriff's Office spokesman said he wasn't sure of Reinhart's condition.
