Sedrek Singleton was arrested in the murder of Todd Hill as Hill slept on a bench near the Miami River early Friday morning.
Singleton fit the description of the culprit and was apprehended wearing a shirt with Hill's blood on it. It's been reported that Singleton attacked Hill because Hill "looked at him wrong."
That's a shame. Singleton is entitled to a trial but what's the point unless he uses mental defect as a defense.
This situation is similar to the Norris Gaynor case in Broward County. His attackers, Billy Ammons, Brian Hooks and Thomas Daugherty, were recently sentenced to Raiford prison for his murder.
Homeless people deserve protection just as anyone else. It's great that witnesses of the attack on Todd Hill were courageous and spoke up about the incident.
