ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – A man was arrested after several people in a Florida neighborhood went to police, saying their neighbor had shown them the body of a woman in his backyard shed.
St. Petersburg police found the body of 29-year-old Cheyenne Snyder inside the shed Monday. They arrested 40-year-old Angelo Dante Beckford, who now faces charges of second-degree murder, aggravated assault and possession of crack cocaine.
Maj. Shannon Halstead said Beckford told investigators he killed Snyder because she made a "mess" in his house. Police said the pair had only known each other a week.
The Tampa Bay Times reports Beckford was released from state prison April 1 after serving 10 years for an attempted robbery conviction.
A lawyer for Beckford wasn't listed on jail records.
