4th Suspect in Soldier's Beating Turns Self In
Brandon Jakob Miller, 18, of Tampa, 'was uncooperative and showed no remorse' for his alleged role in a vicious attack on a MacDill Air Force Base soldier in South Tampa, police said.
The fourth and final suspect wanted in the beating of a MacDill Air Force Base soldier has turned himself in, Tampa Police said.
Brandon Jakob Miller, 18, of 16023 Sharewood Dr., Tampa, turned himself in Tuesday at the Orient Road Jail, officials said Tuesday afternoon. When detectives arrived at the jail, Miller "was uncooperative and showed no remorse," according to a police news release.
Miller is one of four 18-year-old suspects who police say attacked and robbed U.S. Army Sgt. Johnny Aparicio in the early morning hours of May 13. Aparacio, who was walking home near South Renellie Drive and West Iowa Avenue in South Tampa, suffered a broken nose and had a tooth knocked out.
The attack was captured on home surveillance footage.
Miller and the three other suspects — Geroshe Lewis and Lerome Howard of Tampa, and Jared Richardson of Brandon — face charges of aggravated battery and robbery, police said.
A reward of more than $16,000 has been posted by a local church, law firm and private citizens for information that leads to arrests.
Miller is being held on $50,000 bond.
