MAITLAND, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in central Florida say a man was stabbed to death by his former housemates over a stolen PlayStation.
Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma said 22-year-old Jake Bilotta and 21-year-old Ian McClurg coaxed the victim to the home they shared in Maitland. Investigators say he was lured under the premise of going to a party, and then stabbed several times with a chef’s knife.
The sheriff says a third housemate called deputies after arriving home and finding Bilotta putting a body in plastic bags.
The victim’s name hasn’t been released. Lemma says he’d previously lived at the home and the pair suspected him of stealing the game console.
