Teen charged with killing homeless man in Orlando


Murder victim Ora James Light, 51, a homeless man, worked odd jobs for a living. Police said he was homeless by choice.

"Everybody that met him said he was the nicest person you've ever met. He would give them the shirt off his back, he wouldn't confront anybody," a detective said.

Orlando police have arrested an 18-year-old in the killing of a homeless man found on an embankment beneath Interstate 4.

Tyler A. Sturdivant faces first-degree-murder and attempted-robbery charges in the death of Ora James Light, 51, a homeless man, Sgt. Barbara Jones said. Light was found dead along South Orange Blossom Trail at about 1:45 a.m. Monday. He had been stabbed in the neck.

Sturdivant admitted to the stabbing but told detectives it was self-defense.
