Two charged with Robbing, Killing Man in Tampa

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Police say they have arrested two of the four suspects who allegedly broke into a home, killed the homeowner and set the house on fire.

Authorities said the robbers attacked the victim Thursday morning and stole items from the house before setting it on fire. It’s unclear what was stolen or whether the suspects knew Richard Lee Blackman. Authorities found Blackman in the living room of the smoke filled home. He later died at the hospital.

Police released new details Saturday, saying they had arrested two suspects and were working leads on two others.
