Teenager charged in murder of Florida boy, 16


A teenager has been arrested and charged with murder in the case of a missing Florida high school student who was killed “execution-style.”

Indian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar told local media on Friday that 18-year-old Elisha Martin is suspected in the shooting death of 16-year-old Logan Spencer.

Spencer was a high school football player in Sebastian, a central Florida city. He had been reported missing last month, but his body was found in the woods on Feb. 21

Sheriff Loar said Martin told a witness that he shot Spencer in the back of the head.

Several people told investigators Martin blamed Spencer for stealing between $12,000 and $20,000. Deputies found the gun tied to the crime in Martin’s home.

No attorney was listed for Martin in jail records.
