Florida Man To Be Sentenced For Helping Teens Dispose Of Murdered Body

A Florida man is accused of helping teenagers dispose of another teen's murdered body.

James Young Havens III, 44, pleaded guilty Tuesday to accessory after the fact. 

Authorities say a group of teens lured 15-year-old Seath Jackson, who had previously dated a girl in the group, to a Summerfield home in April 2011. He was beaten and shot multiple times.

His body was burned, and authorities say Havens drove two of the teens to a water-filled quarry in Ocala, where they dumped three buckets filled with human remains.

Four other suspects are serving life sentences: 

  • 27-year-old Justin Soto
  • 25-year-old Charlie Ely
  • 23-year-old Kyle Hooper 
  • 21-year-old Amber Wright

The group's leader, 25-year-old Michael Bargo has been sentenced to death.

No sentencing date has been set yet for Havens.
