Two arrested in Pasco murder

SPRING HILL — Two people have been arrested in a dispute over money that led to murder Saturday, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

The suspects — Robert Xavier Goodie, 62, of Hudson, and Debra Hostnick, 54, of Spring Hill — were arrested on warrants around 3 a.m. in Hillsborough County and were being held in the Hillsborough jail, the Sheriff's Office said.

Authorities said that on Saturday afternoon, Kevin R. Wright, 27, was shot several times in his home at 15101 Glenrock Road near Spring Hill.

The Sheriff's Office said the suspects got in a dispute with Wright over money and Goodie shot him several times. The suspects fled. The victim's girlfriend also was assaulted, deputies said.

Jail records show Goodie and Hostnick, who are unemployed, were being held Sunday without bail — Goodie on a first-degree murder charge and Hostnick for an accessory to first-degree murder charge. Both also face an aggravated battery charge.
