Defense Cross-Examines Investigator During Deltona Man’s Triple Murder Trial

By on October 24, 2017 in WNDB News

St. Augustine, FL – During the trial of the Deltona man accused of killing his wife and her two kids, an investigator told defense attorneys that there was no direct evidence to support that the man killed the two kids, but the investigator later clarified that there was circumstantial evidence.

Luis Toledo, of Deltona, was accused in 2013 of killing 28-year-old Yessenia Suarez and her children, Thalia Otto, 9, and Michael Otto, 8, who went missing from their Deltona home in October of 2013. Their bodies have never been found. Toledo confessed to killing his wife out of self-defense, but he claims that his neighbor, Tyshawn Jackson, killed the children. Toledo may face the death penalty if convicted of killing the children.

During cross-examination on Tuesday, the defense tried to prove that Toledo never wavered in his statements that Jackson killed the children. Jackson has never been charged with any of the murders.
