Shakeira Yvonne Rucker : “Estranged Husband Charged with Murder of Missing Florida Woman Found Dead in Storage Unit”

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

The estranged husband of Shakeira Yvonne Rucker, a 37-year-old mother of four, has been charged with her murder, authorities in Orange County, Florida, announced. Rucker was reported missing by her family on November 11, according to CNN. The Winter Springs Police Department was informed that Rucker had last been seen on that date, possibly with her estranged husband, Cory Hill.

Law enforcement officials in Florida began investigating Rucker’s disappearance as a homicide after her body was discovered in a storage unit registered to Hill. In a statement released on Friday, prosecutors from the Office of the State Attorney for the Ninth Judicial Circuit confirmed that they had formally filed murder charges against Hill.

Hill, aged 51, had already been booked into the Orange County Jail on November 13 for an unrelated shooting incident, as reported by CNN. He faced four counts of attempted murder after allegedly shooting at a former girlfriend and her family on November 12, according to Orange County Sheriff John Mina.

Prosecutors added that Hill now faced an additional charge of Second Degree Murder (With a Firearm) in connection with Rucker’s death. Her body was discovered in a self-storage facility in Apopka after someone complained about a foul odor emanating from a unit registered to Hill. When deputies opened the unit, they found Rucker dead from apparent gunshot wounds.

Rucker’s grieving family has set up a GoFundMe page to support her four children, aged 7 through 18. Prosecutors announced their intention to seek a first-degree murder indictment in Rucker’s homicide. However, due to procedural rules, they could only file a Second-Degree Murder charge by Information prior to presenting the case to the Orange County Grand Jury.

CNN reached out to the public defender listed as Hill’s legal representation for comment, but no response has been received at this time. The investigation into Rucker’s murder is ongoing, and any updates will be provided as they become available.
