NAPLES, Florida (AP) -- A man who walked into a Wal-Mart covered in blood and bought garbage bags Friday was charged with murder after authorities found a stabbed body in a trash bin.
Wal-Mart workers called deputies after a blood-soaked man walked into the store and bought some clothes, bandages and trash bags around 4 a.m. He paid with a $100 bill that also appeared to be bloodstained, they said, and drove off in a pickup.
Deputies found a man that matched workers' description, but the man fled. Sheddrick Deon Bentley, 26, was arrested after a second search.
Bentley was charged with killing Cory Brightman, 18, whose body was found in a trash bin about two miles from the hotel where authorities found a white Dodge pickup that had blood on it.
Lack of forethought in planning, I guess.
My signature quote fits well, here I think.
