State Attorney Bill Eddins announced today that a Santa Rosa County Grand Jury indicted Derrick Thompson for two counts of First Degree Murder in the deaths of Steven and Debra Zackowski.
Thompson was previously indicted in Bay County for the killing of Allen Johnson. The State Attorney’s Office for the First Judicial Circuit intends to move forward now with the prosecution of this case. The Bay County case will also be prosecuted at the same time.
On July 19, 2014, the Zackowski’s were found murdered in their home in Milton. The investigation led to the arrest of Derrick Thompson. Thompson is scheduled for his arraignment regarding the Santa Rosa case on October 10, 2014.
