Florida deputies arrest 2 after 78-year-old man was ‘brutally murdered’ in carjacking in CVS parking lot


A Florida man and woman have been arrested in connection with the murder of a 78-year-old man who deputies say was “brutally murdered” in a broad daylight carjacking at a CVS parking lot on Sunday.

Javonne Marece White, 19, and Jasmine Yvonne Munro, 25, are both charged with first-degree murder in the death of Uken Lloyd Cummings, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said. White and Munro were seen handcuffed during a walk on video posted by the sheriff’s office early Thursday.

Cummings had just picked up his medication at the drugstore on Silver Star Road in Orlando and was returning to his car when two individuals confronted him, Sheriff John Mina told reporters.

Uken Lloyd Cummings, 78, was a father of four and had 10 grandchildren. His 54-year-old wife died a few months earlier.

The suspects allegedly shot Cummings, stole his keys and left him for dead.

“While he was lying on the ground, these brazen killers backed the car on top of him and then ran him over again while fleeing the scene in his Mercedes,” the sheriff’s office said.

Cummings had moved to Florida in 2008 to retire with his wife after working for 40 years as a security guard for the New York Hospital Police.

He was the father of four children and had 10 grandchildren. His 54-year-old wife died a few months earlier.

Earlier this week, officials offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

“To the murderers who needlessly snatched this man from their family, we are coming for you,” Mina had said.

As of Thursday morning, no details about what led to the arrests of White and Munro were immediately available.
