Florida man charged with murder, dismemberment of Pennsylvania woman

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Florida police have made an arrest in the murder of a woman whose body was found dismembered.

Tampa police say Robert Kessler of Lutz, Florida, has been arrested in connection to the death of Stephanie Crone-Overholts. Her remains were first discovered on Nov. 11, when fishermen spotted what appeared to be a human leg floating in the water.

Crone-Overholts, of Pennsylvania, had been living in Florida for several months, most recently at a home with Kessler who told Nexstar’s WFLA, he met her by chance at a McDonald’s parking lot. Kessler denied any involvement in her death when he spoke in a recorded off-camera interview with WFLA.
