Thursday's murder of a couple from Florida was the subject of an indictment. They were attacked as they returned home from a motorcycle race.
Jean Robert Macean (32), was arrested in Orlando. He was charged with two counts each of first-degree murder in Sunday's killings of Terry Aultman (48) and Brenda Aultman (55), Daytona Beach Police Chief Jakari Youth told reporters.
Young stated that Macean was taken into custody at 11 AM at Macean's Orlando home, about an hour south of Daytona Beach.
Young stated that the suspect in these horrendous crimes was taken into custody so that everyone could breathe a sigh relief.
Young stated that investigators were able to identify Macean because of a "massive" amount surveillance video. Young said that no motive was known and described the killings in a random, senseless act.
After riding their bikes home after a night at Daytona Bike Week (billed as the "world’s largest motorcycle event"), the Aultmans were attacked and stabbed to death. The bodies of the Aultman's were discovered on Sunday by the Seabreeze Historic District.
They were covered with blood, and suffered multiple stab wounds.
Young stated that this was "probably one of the most vicious, gruesome instances that I've seen in my 20-years," according to WESH of Orlando, NBC affiliate.
Sara Turner, Brenda Aultman’s daughter, spoke to reporters on Thursday. She called the murder a "nightmare that I never expected".
She cried, unable to contain her tears. "My mother was my best friend. She was the most caring, loving and selfless person I know."
Young stated that Macean will be making his first court appearance in Orlando. Young didn't immediately say if Macean has a lawyer.
