BRADENTON — After about 30 minutes of deliberation, the Manatee County jury unanimously recommended the death penalty for Delmer Smith. Smith showed no emotion while several in the gallery quietly cried with the hands over the mouths. Judge Peter Dubensky said he expects a sentencing hearing to occur in two months. The jury voted 12-0 to recommend that Dubensky sentence Smith, 41, to death for beating Kathleen Briles to death on Aug. 9, 2009.The recommendation was announced about 4:45 p.m.
Delmer Smith is already serving a life sentence for a violent home invasion in Sarasota County, and he has been charged or is the prime suspect in several other serial rape attacks in Manatee and Sarasota counties. I hope they poke the needle in his eye.
BUT...The State Attorney In Sarasota Refuses to Charge Delmer Smith in Murder of Georgeann Smith. This is outrageous, the sister of raped and murdered Georgeann Smith had contacted me to investigate why the State Attorney’s office in Sarasota Fl will not charge dirtbag Delmer Smith with her attack, even though Sarasota County Sehriff Detectives have discovered DNA that puts mad dog rapist Delmer Smith in Georgeann Smith’s house prior to her violent beat down.
Sarasota Home invasion thug Delmer Smith raped and beat to death Georgann Lee Smith on Joann Drive Sarasota, she was beaten to death with a baseball bat, she had been bound and raped, she had been home alone, she died alone. See the whole story CLICK HERE.
