    Ervin Washington

    Details:

    On May 19, 2013 at approximately 10:30 p.m., the victim, Ervin Washington, called his mother from the Walmart on Hwy 92 and advised her that his wife, Emon Kellar, stabbed him and flattened all four tires of his truck. His mother picked him up and took him to her residence. She rendered first aid to his stab wound.

    On May 20, 2013 at approximately 4:00 a.m., Washington had his mother drive him around to do his paper route. During this time, Kellar was seen following them closely in her vehicle. Washington was dropped off at his residence, which he shares with Kellar. Kellar also arrived at the residence as Washington was getting out of his mother's car. At that time, Kellar made verbal threats to Washington in front of his mother.

    On May 20, 2013 at approximately 5:30 a.m., HCSO received a 911 call in reference to a deceased male who had been shot at 130 Winston Manor Circle in Seffner. When deputies arrived, a neighbor stated that she had heard yelling and had seen Kellar raise her hand towards Washington and then she heard a loud pop. Kellar ran inside and told her children that their father had killed himself. Then, Kellar was seen attempting to put the firearm into Washington's left hand.

    Emon Kellar was arrested and charged with First Degree Murder with a Firearm.
