Ronnie O'neal Gives Opening Statments For His Own Murder Trial
Ronnie O’Neal III, 29, charged with two counts of first-degree murder, and one count each of attempted murder, arson, and resisting arrest. He is accused of shooting Kenyatta Barron, 33. O'Neal is also suspected of stabbing his 11-year-old daughter Ron’niveya O'Neal.
According to a detailed incident report released by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, at around 11:43pm on Sunday, the county's emergency dispatch center received a 911 call from a woman, later identified as Kenyatta ‘Keke’ Barron, 33, repeatedly pleading for help and saying she had been shot.
The Riverview man is facing two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder. He has elected to represent himself in his own murder trial, which means he’ll be able to cross-examine his son, who was 8 years old at the time of the murder.
