The son of a Florida man who authorities say was stabbed by a 19-year-old Florida State University student wants prosecutors to seek the death penalty.
John Stevens IV tells the SunSentinel (http://bit.ly/2bOMZZz) he doesn’t need to know exactly what led the student to kill his father and step-mother outside their house north of Jupiter on Monday night. But he wants prosecutors to seek the death penalty against the attacker, who investigators say also was biting the dead man’s face when deputies arrived at the scene.
Austin Harrouff hasn’t been charged in the attack. Sheriff’s officials say he’s still in the hospital where he’s conscious but heavily sedated.
Investigators say it took several deputies and a police dog to subdue Harrouff. He tested negative for street drugs. It takes longer to test for less common hallucinogenic drugs such as flakka or bath salts.
The younger Stevens says knowing the attacker’s mindset is not “super important” to him. He just wants him to “pay for what he did.”
