Huss case now second-degree murder

Yana Huss


CHARLOTTE COUNTY -- The charge of manslaughter against Scott Huss in the slaying of his wife has been upgraded to second-degree murder.

Assistant State Attorney Daniel Feinberg filed the change, claiming that Huss killed Yana Huss on April 25 by stabbing her with a knife or another sharp object.

If convicted of second-degree murder, Huss could face a life sentence but not the death penalty, according to Florida statutes.
