The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office said that they have arrested 37-year-old Amber Maltese, after being accused of killing 60-year-old Alfred G. Megathlin.

Maltese has been charged with first-degree premeditated murder. She was booked into the Brevard County Jail, where she is being held without bail.

According to the police investigation, Maltese and Megathlin lived together in the apartment located at 2334 Golf Lake Circle.

When Maltese learned that her father was set to throw her out of his apartment and cut her out of his will, she flew into a rage.

Maltese grabbed arrows and stabbed her 70 times. She also stabbed him with deer antlers. After Megathlin was dead, Maltese fled from the scene.

When police officers noticed that Maltese was driving erratically on Interstate 95, they attempted to pull her over.

Maltese rammed her car into the police cruisers and fled from the scene.
