A Florida woman is in a coma after a roommate she found on Craigslist brutally attacked her on Valentine’s Day.
Thirty-five-year-old, Byron Mitchell, is facing charges including attempted murder after strangling and attacking twenty-three-year-old, Danielle Jones,with a knife causing numerous slashes to her face.
Police said Mitchell moved in with Jones in a downtown Miami apartment two weeks ago after she found him on the Craigslist roommate listings.
According to the Jones family on a gofundme page it was the victim’s birthday when she was bludgeoned, strangled and her face mutilated in an attempted murder by a man she had accepted as a roommate after she placed an ad on Craigslist.
Police told the Miami Herald they are unable to give any further details on the attack because of conflicting statements from both parties.
