TAMARAC, Fla. – A Tamarac woman and a Tennessee man are expected to be brought back to Broward County from abroad to face charges in the murder of a missing Tamarac man, the Broward Sheriff’s Office announced Monday.
MPs reported that Gianni Coto, 28, went missing on January 25.
BSO spokeswoman Miranda Grossman said Jan. 21 that Coto went to the Tamarac home of his estranged wife, Trinity Bownes, 31, which is on Block 8900 of Northwest 77th Court.
Grossman said the two got into an argument and at one point Coto was fatally stabbed.
Brandon Jenkins, 29, of Clarksville, Tennessee, was also involved in the incident, Grossman said. A press release from the sheriff’s office did not specify the nature of his involvement.
After the fatal stabbing, Coto’s remains were buried at State Road 60 in Indian River County and discovered Jan. 30, according to the BSO.
Clarksville Police Department officers arrested Jenkins Friday, while Bownes turned himself in to authorities in San Joaquin County, California the next day, Grossman said.
Upon their return to South Florida, both are expected to face first-degree murder and evidence tampering charges.
Both were in custody out of state as of Monday afternoon.
