suspect in murder of 36-year-old James Sheaffer
VOLUSIA COUNTY, FLORIDA – Angela Stoldt, of Volusia County, is accused of boiling and baking her neighbor after strangling and dismembering him.
Stoldt, 42, was arrested in April 2013 as a suspect in the murder of 36-year-old James Sheaffer, who lived across the street. The Volusia County Sheriff’s Department said last year that Stoldt confessed to the murder, stabbing and strangling Sheaffer to death.
According to recent court documents, Stoldt stabbed Sheaffer in both eyes with an ice pick and strangled him with a tree-climbing tool. She then dismembered the victim’s body with a hacksaw and then tried to cremate Sheaffer’s body by cooking his body parts in the oven, and also in pots on the stove.
Sheaffer had a financial agreement with Stoldt, who was listed as the payee on a joint bank account for deposit of Sheaffer’s Social Security disability checks.
The grand jury in Daytona Beach upped Stoldt’s charge of second degree murder to first-degree murder, and she’s currently being held on a no bond status.
