Pharmacist charged with murdering wife in Tampa home

TAMPA — Deputies accused a local pharmacist of beating his wife to death inside their home Wednesday morning.

Olufemi Oladapo Ademoye, 52, ran out of his house at 8615 Villa Largo Drive in north Tampa at 9:50 a.m. and asked a neighbor to call 911.

He said his wife, Juliet Ademoye, had a heart attack, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

But when deputies and rescue crews arrived, they found that the master bedroom and bathroom were covered in blood.

Deputies also determined that an aluminum baseball bat was covered with her blood.

Juliet Ademoye, 53, was pronounced dead by Hillsborough County Fire Rescue. She was licensed as a mortgage broker, state records show.

Deputies said they think she suffered from blunt-force trauma to the head and body.

Her husband told paramedics they had been in a fight, according to the Sheriff's Office.

He was charged with second-degree murder Wednesday night.

Ademoye, who worked at Crown Pharmacy, had been a member of the Nigerian Pharmacists Association of Tampa Bay.

According to its website, the nonprofit was formed in 1996 and holds seminars and other educational offerings for its more than 50 members.

He is also licensed by the state Board of Health through September 2011 and has never been disciplined or had public complaints filed against him, records show.

Ademoye was taken to a Hillsborough County jail.
