SAINT AUGUSTINE – State Attorney R.J. Larizza announced at a press conference at 11:30 AM on Thursday, June 4, 2015 that the St. Johns County Grand Jury returned a four-count indictment against Sergio Morgan-Wideman for the First Degree Murder of Malav Desai, the Armed Robbery of the Tobacco and Beverage Express, and for Aggravated Assault on two patrons of that establishment.
Morgan-Wideman, who is being charged as an adult, faces a maximum possible penalty of life in prison if convicted at trial. Because this case is pending and due to the nature of the ongoing investigation as related to the Co-Defendant, this office will issue no further comment at this time.
