ORLANDO, (AP) - Palm Bay police say a 16-year-old fatally cut a woman's throat with a knife and then used the approximately $6 he
stole from her to buy beer.
Alan Michael Tanguay is facing a first-degree murder charge in the death of 58-year-old Patricia Kaliszeski. Kaliszeski was found dead at her home on Friday, and police arrested Tanguay on Monday on information from at least two witnesses.
Kaliszeski was found in her bedroom with her throat cut and multiple stab wounds in her neck. Tanguay confessed to the crime during an interview, police said.
A witness told police that because Tanguay is too young to buy alcohol he asked someone to buy him beer with the money he stole from Kaliszeski.
