Man Faces Murder Charges in Melbourne – Orlando Criminal Defense

By Tracey Kagan

A Brevard County murder suspect, that was originally picked up by law enforcement in Georgia for allegedly killing a Melbourne woman, has been formally charged with murder. According to Fox News, Matthew J. Sharp of Melbourne, Florida, has been charged with first degree murder for allegedly killing Leah Yoresh. The charge is murder in the first degree because law enforcement has determined that the crime was allegedly premeditated. In other words, law enforcement believes that Mr. Sharp intentionally and willfully killed Ms. Yoresh.

First degree murder is a serious felony charge in Florida and a conviction could potentially lead to the death penalty. I would advise Mr. Sharp to consult an experienced criminal defense lawyer to find out what his legal options are.
