TPD: Cell phone, DNA lead to suspect in February murder

TAMPA - A Tampa man is under arrest and charged with the February 23 stabbing death of another man.

Juan Ordonez, 51, was found murdered in his home on Arch Street.

Detectives say Qushawn Williams, 21, killed Ordonez during a fight and took the victim's wallet and cell phone.

Williams used the victim's cell phone multiple times, police say.

DNA evidence from the crime scene was processed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. It was a match for Williams, who claimed he had never been in the victim's home.

Williams is now charged with second-degree murder and grand theft.
