Associated Press Release
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A Jacksonville man has been charged with murder after a decomposing body was found inside a home.
Jail records show 27-year-old Cedric Dondrell Tate is being held without bond on murder charges and marijuana possession. Jail records do not list an attorney.
Tate was arrested Friday after authorities discovered the body of 40-year-old Wilfred Myers Johnson decomposing inside a home. Neighbors had called to complain of a foul odor.
Lt. Rob Schoonover with the Sheriff's Office told the Times-Union a confidential information provided police with information that led to the arrest. Police say Johnson was robbed and shot once in the back of the head inside the house. Tate knew the victim.
Schoonover said the robbery and shooting were planned and that Johnson was lured to the house.
