Fugitive wanted on sexual battery charges captured in Ohio

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A 37-year-old fugitive wanted on a warrant for sexual battery captured Thursday in Ohio after fleeing from St. Johns County in July, authorities said.

Michael Owen Hutchison, 37, of Elkton, is being held without bond in Marion County, Ohio following his arrest on two warrants for sexual battery, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.

Hutchison was initially booked on a sexual battery charge June 9 and released after posting $25,000 bond, deputies said.

While free on bond, Hutchison sexually battered an unconscious man in July, the victim told investigators. Afterward, the Sheriff's Office obtained a warrant for Hutchison's arrest.

When the warrant was issued, deputies discovered Hutchison had fled the county. Then a second warrant -- this one with a $250,000 bond -- was issued for Hutchison's arrest, followed by another for the violation of his bond conditions.

Candle light vigil held for victims of quadruple homicide

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Emotions are running high as the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office continues to search for whoever is behind the shooting death of four people in the Murray Hill area. Dozens of people crowded Randolph Street Monday night for a vigil in honor of the victims. 

Both children and adults were brought to tears, with candles in hand trying to make sense of it all. Four people shot and killed Thursday night inside of a home now surrounded with rest in peace posters, one reads "we love you daddy."

"I don't know what to tell his kids," said Sabrina Johnson. "They keep asking for their father."

Johnson, who is Derrick Williams' aunt says he leaves behind three children, and has joined one of his son's and his own father who died several years ago.

"His daughter is in pain," said Johnson. "His family is in pain."
