Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Estranged Husband Charged with Murder of Woman Found Dead in Florida Storage Unit

Authorities have charged the estranged husband of a woman whose body was discovered in a storage unit in Orange County, Florida, with her murder. Shakeira Yvonne Rucker, 37, was reported missing by her family after they last saw her on November 11, according to CNN. Rucker’s family had informed the Winter Springs Police Department that she had left her home for an unknown destination, possibly with her estranged husband, Cory Hill.

The investigation took a grim turn when law enforcement officials found Rucker’s body in a storage unit registered to Hill. Florida authorities immediately began treating her disappearance as a homicide. On Friday, the Office of the State Attorney for the Ninth Judicial Circuit formally charged Hill with the murder of Shakeira Rucker. Hill, who had already been arrested on charges of attempted second-degree murder and other offenses against his ex-girlfriend and her family, remains in jail under a no bond status.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office revealed that Hill, 51, was initially taken into custody on November 13 for an unrelated shooting incident. He had allegedly shot at his former girlfriend and her family, resulting in charges of four counts of attempted murder. Now, Hill faces an additional charge of second-degree murder (with a firearm) for the death of Rucker.

Authorities discovered Rucker’s body after receiving a complaint about a foul smell emanating from Hill’s storage unit at 2400 Wiggins Road in Apopka. Upon opening the unit, deputies found Rucker dead from apparent gunshot wounds. Prosecutors have expressed their intention to seek a first-degree murder indictment in Rucker’s homicide. However, due to procedural rules, they are currently limited to filing a second-degree murder charge by information.

CNN has reached out to the public defender assigned to Hill for comment on the charges. The investigation into the murder of Shakeira Rucker continues, and authorities are working diligently to bring justice for her tragic death.
