Woman Sentenced to Life in Prison for 2022 Murder of Detention Deputy

CITRUS COUNTY – The Citrus County Sheriff's Office has announced the conviction of a woman who shot and killed her ex-boyfriend, a Marion County Detention Deputy.

On August 19, 2022, deputies responded to a residence on Pine Ridge Estates due to reports of a suicide. Prior to their arrival deputies were advised 31-year-old Cory Schweitzer had an apparent gunshot wound and was not breathing. Once first responders arrived at the residence, they pronounced the victim to be deceased.

Preliminary information at the scene led CCSO Major Crimes Sergeant Thomas Dowling and Detective Roscoe Watts to believe this was not a suicide. As evidence was collected and analyzed, CCSO Crime Scene Specialist Victoria Gerneth discovered several inconsistencies between the collected evidence and the crime scene, leading detectives to believe this was a "staged" suicide. Upon a thorough investigation, detectives secured an arrest warrant for 24-year-old Jacqueline Jasmin Johnson-Cabrera, an ex-girlfriend of the victim, for First-Degree Murder.

Officials say Johnson-Cabrera will serve a life sentence in the Florida Department of Correction after entering a plea deal.
