Woman killed, child found in home

Posted: Updated:

Orange County Sheriff's deputies released the name of a woman killed inside her Dr. Phillips home Sunday morning.  Jorgete Acarie, 43, was found dead in a back bedroom of her Forrest Run Lane home.

Deputies showed up after the home alarm went off.  Inside, they found Acari shot to death and her 2-year-old son lying next to her in the bed.  A window next to the front door was smashed out, and a side window screen was sitting on the ground Sunday evening when FOX 35 News showed up at the scene.

Many neighbors we talked to were too shaken to talk about the shooting.   Zach Davis and his family live down the street.

Davis says, "We're pretty shocked and surprised. We've always felt like this is a very safe neighborhood, and I was just talking to my wife about how this is the first neighborhood we've lived in a long time where we don't feel like we have to lock the doors."

Deputies aren't saying right now who they think might have shot Acari.  The boy was unharmed, and is staying with his aunt and uncle in Orlando.

If you have any information call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS (8477).
