Colombian immigrant (legal? illegal?) charged in murder of his employers

The victims are a retired doctor, 76, shot dead in the driveway of his home, and his 55 year old wife, shot dead in the bathroom, both of them Hispanic, who had been married for 30 years and resided in a gated community in Tampa. The suspect evidently had been stealing from the wife’s business.

How many similar stories have there been of Americans being killed by their immigrant employees? People come here from poor countries, go to work for well-to-do Americans, and the exposure to their wealth presents both the temptation and the opportunity to murder.

The story is in the Daily Mail, a paper without which, it sometimes seems, we wouldn’t know half of what is going on in this country, where most crimes, including sensational ones like this, are reported only in local media.
