Alphonso Cave More News

During an armed robbery, the defendant, Alphonso Cave, and three accomplices kidnapped the victim, 18-year-old Frances Julia Slater.  One of the men later stabbed her, another fired a fatal shot into her head.

On the evening of April 26, 1982, Cave, along with John Bush, J.B. Parker and Terry Wayne Johnson, left Fort Pierce, Florida, and drove to Stuart, Florida.  They arrived in Stuart at approximately 11 p.m. that evening.

Around 3 a.m. on April 27, the four pulled up to a convenience store in Stuart.  Cave and two of the men entered the store where Cave held a gun on Slater and demanded the store’s cash.  After taking the cash, the men abducted Slater, placing her in the back seat of the car.

They drove to a rural area where she was removed from the car by the four men.  One of the men then stabbed her and, when she fell, another fired a single lethal shot into the back of her head. 

The men then departed the scene for Fort Pierce but were stopped by police approximately one hour later because of a broken taillight.  They were released at that time but later apprehended when the car and its occupants were linked to the convenience store crime.
