State Attorney’s Homicide Unit Secures Two Life Sentences This Week
DAYTONA BEACH – Two defendants will spend their remaining years in the custody of the Florida State Department of Corrections following sentences handed down this week. Michael Vanshon Henderson, 39, who was previously convicted of murdering Allen Dexter Johnson, of Daytona Beach, on December 7, 2018 learned his fate today, January 14, 2019. Assistant State Attorney Heatha Trigones prosecuted the case and Circuit Judge Dennis Craig presided over the trial and handed down the sentence.
In another homicide unit victory, 28-year-old Kelsey McFoley, of DeLand, was sentenced to life in prison following the murder-for-hire death of 60-year-old Carlos Cruz-Echevarria. Cruz-Echevarria previously was set to testify against McFoley in another case. Jurors deliberated about two hours before returning the guilty verdict. Assistant State Attorney Ryan Will prosecuted the case and Circuit Judge Matt Foxman presided over the trial and handed down the sentence.
