State Attorney Skip Jarvis announced today that after considering the facts developed during the continuing investigation of the death of James Edward Campbell on March 15, 2012, and the Indictment returned by the Madison County Grand Jury on April 20, 2012, the State of Florida will be seeking the death penalty upon a conviction in this case.
Jarvis said “This decision is not taken lightly. The facts show a vulnerable victim living alone who was coldly and callously killed, then left for days on the floor of his home while the defendant came and went, stealing items from the victim’s home.”
