HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. - A man described as a person of interest in a double murder in Brandon turned himself in at the Hillsborough County Courthouse late Friday afternoon, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Charles Andre Martinez was accompanied by his attorney when he walked into the courthouse around 4 p.m.
Before being transported to the Orient Road Jail, Martinez was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
He has not been charged with the murders of two females found dead in a Brandon apartment on Thursday.
One of the victims is identified as Lindsay Nicole Greene, 25, and lived at the scene of the crime, 1528 Highland Ridge Circle.
The other victim has not been identified and the Medical Examiner said it may be several days before positive identification can be made.
The inside of the townhouse was burned out when authorities found the victims. Investigators believe the fire may have been set after the murders to destroy evidence.
Homeowner's Association President Joe Desmarias said Greene didn't pick up her toddler from daycare two days ago, so the daycare called the child's father to pick him up. But, no one called the police.
"She was a nice girl," explained Desmarias. "She always had fun with the little boy."
Then, a neighbor said she smelled smoke on Wednesday but thought she was having trouble with one of her appliances, deputies say.
She smelled smoke again Thursday.
However, she never called 911.
Desmarias told ABC Action News he noticed the windows on the townhouse were black Thursday morning. However, he mistook that for a HOA violation.
"If you look fast it looks like it was black tinted," said Desmarias.
