TAMPA, Fla. - Here are five things you need to know happening in Florida on Monday, June 11.
(1) Walter Dunn trial
The trial of Walter Dunn is scheduled to begin in Tampa on Monday.
Dunn is charged with Kidnapping, Burglary with Battery and two counts of Aggravated Battery. He was arrested in 2009 after allegedly trying to kill his wife by setting her on fire.
Deputies say on November 2, 2009, Dunn kicked open the door to Marco Ramirez's home. Ramirez was cut on the shoulder and face by the door's shattered glass.
That is when Dunn is accused of grabbing his wife by the hair, hitting her and then taking her from the house against her will.
Investigators say Dunn drove to his house and poured gasoline on his wife and attempted to ignite her on fire. When the lighter failed to ignite the gasoline, Dunn allegedly battered the victim. That is when deputies arrived at scene, ordered Dunn to the ground and took him into custody.
(2) Burned boy trial
In Fort Lauderdale, the trial of Matthew Bent is scheduled to begin on Monday.
Bent is facing attempted murder charges in the 2009 attack on Michael Brewer. Prosecutors say Ben ordered his friend Denver Jarvis to pour a flammable liquid on Brewer on October 12, 2009.
Another teen, Jesus Mendez, admitted he acted on his own when he flicked a lighter and ignited the fumes to set Brewer on fire. Brewer suffered burns over two-thirds of his body.
Jarvis and Mendez pleaded no contest to the charges they were facing. Both of them will be called to testify against Bent. Brewer is also expected to testify during the trial.
The trial is expected to take about two weeks. Bent faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
