TITUSVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in central Florida say a man was killed in a dispute over whether he touched another man’s pickup truck.
Brevard County Sheriff’s spokesman Maj. Tod Goodyear tells the Orlando Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1Rz4sCr) that 67-year-old German Heredia was walking with his granddaughters and their dogs Jan. 5 when Warren Buchanan walked up and accused Heredia of touching his truck.
The two men began arguing. Goodyear says 51-year-old Buchanan then hit Heredia’s face, knocking him to the ground and causing him to hit his head. Heredia was taken to a hospital, where he died.
The Brevard County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death a homicide caused by trauma to the head.
