LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Correnia Bice was arrested and charged with second degree murder after being found with blood on her hands, standing over a deceased elderly man.
On Monday, at 2:53 a.m., the Lee County Sheriff's Office received a call about a disturbance. The incident occurred in the 5800 block of Luloma Lane in Bokeelia.
The caller was eventually identified as 49-year-old Correnia Bice who told the operator she'd had a fight with a male inside a residence and he was in need of an ambulance. Upon arrival, deputies approached the front window of the residence and saw Ms. Bice waving for them to come inside. They found her standing over a deceased elderly white male. The man had sustained numerous injuries including stab wounds.
Futher investigation revealed a Styrofoam plate duct taped to the wall directly across from the rear door entrance. The words "I'm going to kill you so come on" were written with what appears to be red lipstick. The word "kill" emphasized with red and yellow writing. Ms. Bice was found to have blood on her hands, feet and clothing, as well as in her hair.
Due to the nature of the incident, Homicide Detectives with the Sheriff's Office Major Crimes Unit assumed the investigation. Correnia Bice was subsequently charged with second degree murder and transported to the Lee County Jail.
The victim's identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
