A jury indicted Robert Shane Lucas of Navarre Wednesday for the murder of Carrie Lynn Brewer.
State Attorney Bill Eddins announced Lucas was indicted by the Grand Jury in Santa Rosa County for the first degree premeditated murder of Brewer at 2212 Fulva Drive in Navarre on or about Feb. 3.
In addition to the murder charge, the indictment includes graft theft of a firearm, grand theft auto, fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer in an agency vehicle with lights and sirens activated at high speed, aggravated assault upon a law enforcement officer, battery upon a law enforcement officer, and resisting officer with violence.
After Brewer’s body was discovered in the garage of her home, Lucas became a suspect after notes of his allegedly revealed plans to kill Brewer and other members of the family. He then fled police in a high speed chase through Gulf Breeze, nearly running over an officer according to law enforcement. His vehicle was run off the road and he was taken into custody after a struggle according to sheriff’s office statements.
The defendant will be arraigned on the seven count indictment March 7. Lucas remains in jail with no bond.
