NAPLES (CBSMiami) –Two young men from the Miami-Dade area face murder charges in Naples and the initial information we’re getting is that it was all over drugs.
CBS4 partnered with the Naples Daily News for the story.
The brothers were apparently back home in Miami just a few weeks ago. The people CBS4’s Jamie Guirola spoke to didn’t really have anything bad to say about the suspected murderers. In fact, this whole thing has thrown them for a loop, but it’s also left two other families in turmoil.
In a courtroom roughly 95 miles from South Florida, two Miami brothers appeared in front of a judge accused of murder times two.
Jacob Mislow,21, and Nickloas Mislow,19, were wearing orange jumpsuits when they appeared separately in front of a judge. Family of one of the men gunned down broke into tears.
Gerameshia Henry, Keegan Leon’s stepdaughter said, “He kissed my mom, kissed the twins, said I’m gonna be right back. He never came back.”
But two Naples families are grieving.
Lydia Anglero, Eric Riley’s Mother, said ” This is a pain that I would never wish on anybody even my worse enemy because it is very strong.”
Keegan Leon,21, and Eric Riley Jr.,23, were gunned down in an east Naples apartment complex. Neighbors heard multiple shots. And the Mislow brothers are accused of firing the fatal rounds. Police took them in after they were found in a truck matching the description of a pickup fleeing the scene.
“I see the guys right there on the corner shot the gun and I don’t know what happened then because I went inside to my apartment,” said an eyewitness.
The Mislow brothers grew up in Miami-Dade and lived in this remote home in Homestead for three years. The people there when we showed up– didn’t exactly feel like talking but the neighbors did.
Luis Guerreo, a neighbor, told CBS4’s Jamie Guirola, “Just hi and bye chit-chat relationship. They’re really good people from what I know but of course I don’t know them that well.”
“I was shocked honestly. You know everybody says that they don’t expect that from their neighbors and I wouldn’t think I’d be in that situation but its true. I would never expect them especially to have been accused of something like this,” said neighbor Marcus Guerreo.
Neither did two families preparing for the holidays without their loved ones.
“I cannot do it no more because he’s not here. Xmas it wont be Xmas because he’s not here and new years its gonna be so hard,” said Anglero.
Bond is set for both Mislows at $2 million.
