Port St. Lucie, FL (WIVB) - Police arrested a man and woman wanted in connection with the death of a Western New York native found killed in her Florida home.
The body of Alisa Susan Kerman, 52, was found in her Port St. Lucie, Florida home Thursday.
According to Port St. Lucie Police, police had been conducting surveillance on a truck stolen from her house, at a hotel on North State Road 7 in Port St. Lucie. Members of a SWAT team from Fort Lauderdale went to the hotel room early Sunday morning and arrested David Weingrad, 27, and Georgia Scordamaglia, 31, without incident.
The man and woman are described as boyfriend and girlfriend.
An autopsy showed Kerman died from blunt force trauma to her skull. Police say she had been bludgeoned with an unknown object.
Kerman was discovered about 6:41 PM, in the home, by the 16-year-old for whom she was a legal guardian.
Kerman's pickup truck and two handguns were missing, as were the two other people who lived in the house.
Initially Port St. Lucie Police called the roommates -- Weingrad and Scordamaglia -- "persons of interest."
Port St. Lucie Police Sgt. Frank Sabol tells News 4 Kerman moved to Port St. Lucie a number of years ago. She then lived in Tampa, and moved back to Port St. Lucie about three years ago, he said.
