Police have arrested a 27-year-old man believed responsible for burglarizing and murdering a woman at People’s Self-Storage in Miami, Fla., last week. Surveillance footage from the facility shows 55-year-old Joslin Augustin being approached by a white car and shot in the neck before the gunman stole her purse. She had visited the facility in the middle of the day to pick up items from her storage unit.
Police say the gunman was Allapattah, Fla., resident Wesley Benard Henton, who confessed to robbing and killing Augustin. He faces felony charges of first-degree murder, use of a firearm during a felony and armed robbery. Police are still looking for his accomplice, who was driving the car.
Henton has a record of violent crime including charges of sexual battery with a weapon, petty theft and marijuana possession. He was convicted of felony armed robbery in 2000.
