The Seath Jackson murder

On April 17, 2011, five people reportedly planned to kill 15-year-old Seath Jackson. They lured him back to a house in Summerfield, Fla. where he was beat and shot. And then they reportedly mutilated his body, stuffed it into a sleeping bag and threw it into a blazing fire.


  1. Amber Wright, 16, one of five co-defendants in the Seath Jackson murder case. She was found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison for allegedly luring her ex-boyfriend Seath Jackson to the house by sending him text messages. She said she wanted to meet with him so they could talk about their relationship. But that reportedly didn't happen.
  2. Kyle Hooper, 17, one of the five co-defendants in the Seath Jackson murder. He was also found guilty of first-degree murder along with his sister in a joint trial and sentenced to life in prison.
  3. Text messages that Amber Wright sent victim Seath Jackson to allegedly lure him back to a home so he could be murdered.
  4. Justin Soto, 21, another co-defendant. He pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in late May to avoid facing the death penalty.
  5. Michael Bargo, 20, the plot's alleged mastermind. He awaits trial scheduled for August 2013.
  6. Charlie Kay Ely, 19, the first co-defendant to be tried. She was found guilty and is currently serving a life sentence in prison.
  7. Guilty verdict for brother and sister teens allegedly involved in Seath Jackson murder. Two juries found each defendant guilty in under three hours.
