Fucci is accused of stabbing Bailey 114 times before hiding her body in the woods nearby his home earlier this month.

Bailey was reported missing to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office on May 9. Her body was found later that evening near a retention pond. Investigators found Fucci’s DNA on the girl’s body and her DNA was found on the murder weapon.

State Attorney R. J. Larizza said, “she was fighting for her life. To say it was horrific could arguably be made as an understatement.”

Fucci was initially charged with second-degree murder, but is now facing first-degree murder. If convicted, he will face life in prison.
