A Florida father "enraged" over his daughter's lesbian relationship has been charged with killing her girlfriend. Miami's CBS 4:
"The Polk County Sheriff's Office arrested Jerry Lee Seger, 40, on Saturday and he now faces first-degree murder charges. Seger told police he blamed Courtney Bright for his 23-year-old daughter's arrest. He said Bright had been dating his daughter Ashley Dunn for about three years. Dunn was arrested Tuesday on a warrant for dealing in stolen property. Bright was killed either Tuesday or Wednesday, an autopsy concluded. Bright's body was found Thursday when a couple hoping to purchase a foreclosed home toured the property."
Friends of the victim say it was more than that. Bobbi Johnson tells Tampa Bay's Fox 13 the women "were in love" and Seger was enraged. "I know he was upset because Ashely was arrested. That's not why he killed her. He killed her because they were lesbians."
Seger is being held without bond. Watch FOX 13's report WHEN YOU JUMP ...
After watching the clip, make sure you read the Facebook conversation about the story. One or two members of Seger's family are blaming the media, claim "he didn't do it" and suggest it was a drug deal gone wrong. "Her being gay has nothing to do with anything," one woman claims. Of course it didn't, hon.
