NORTH LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) — Deputies arrested an 18-year-old woman in connection to a man found dead in a burning car at a North Lauderdale park.
Investigators say Rougiena Deriveire was arrested for her alleged involvement in the death of 27-year-old Darren Butler.
She is facing a charge of first-degree murder.
Broward Sheriff’s deputies said Butler’s body was found inside the burning car at Bicentennial Park last week.
A search of public records shows Butler was arrested back in May 2016 in Fort Lauderdale on a charge of carrying a weapon in the open. He bonded out a day later.
Neighbors said around the time of the car fire, they heard what they thought were shots being fired.
Deputies say the investigation continues.
