Disabled veteran stabbed 50 times, shot in head in Sarasota; female suspect arrested

 A 28-year-old  Sarasota woman  has been charged with second-degree murder, the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office reported Thursday.

Jennie Lee Osborne is accused of killing Terrence Edwards, 65, at about 3 p.m. Wednesday in the 100 block of Winson Avenue.

An autopsy found the victim died as a result of 50 stab wounds to the torso and a gunshot to the back of the head, the report said.
Edwards, a disabled veteran, met Osborne outside of Cafe de la Bay in Englewood and invited her to his residence, according to a redacted arrest report.

On Wednesday night, deputies responded to a call at Englewood Community Hospital at about 8:30 p.m. where Osborne claimed to have shot and stabbed Edwards after she was sexually assaulted by him, a report said.

No evidence of sexual assault was found after a medical exam.

After being read her rights, Osborne admitted something to the deputies regarding this case, the report said, but details on the admission were blocked out on the report.

"The defendant made statements to four separate people that she did something really terrible and that she would be going to prison for a very long time," the report said.

Osborne is currently in Sarasota  County jail.
