A Florida woman is facing a murder charge after she allegedly lured a teenager into meeting her and her brother, took him into a wooded area, and killed him. According to court documents, Connie Serbu told police that Xavier Sierra, a family acquaintance, had sexually assaulted her daughter years earlier, when the girl was about 6 years old. Serbu’s daughter told her about this in May 2016, and just over a month later, Serbu put her plan into action, a police affidavit says.

Ok so to sum it up
The bodies of Sierra and John Vargas, 29, of the Bronx, New York, were found in an undeveloped area near the 700 block of Goodlette-Frank Road on July 7, 2016. Naples police found the bodies while investigating reports of gunshots fired in the area.
Vargas was on vacation in Naples as an early birthday celebration and to visit Serbu, one of his sisters. He was killed a month and a half shy of his 30th birthday.
According to a Naples Police Department release, Sierra suffered multiple gunshot wounds after being confronted by Serbu and Vargas. Vargas also was shot during the altercation, police said.
On Aug. 25, the State Attorney’s Office approved an arrest warrant for Serbu on a second-degree murder charge, according to police.
The warrant was served at the Naples Jail Center, where Serbu has been in custody since February on suspicion of custodial interference. (Remember, she kidnapped her Child)
No charges have been filed in the death of John Vargas, according to Naples police Lt. Seth Finman.
Questions remain among the men’s relatives and friends about why they were killed.
“The arrest brings up a lot of old emotions,” said Zachary Rodriguez, a friend of Sierra. Rodriguez was one of the last people Sierra spoke to before his death.
“But it also brings a big weight off my chest and helps me take a deep breath,” he said. “Things are taking a step in the right direction, and it feels good to know justice is being served.”
The case is still open and being investigated, according to police.
Serbu and her husband agreed in July 2016 that he would have full custody of their two children “due to an active homicide investigation in which Connie is a potential witness,” according to court documents. The couple had been “experiencing marital problems” and lived separately on and off since 2014, documents state.
Serbu took her son to New Jersey, but detectives couldn’t find them for several weeks, according to court records.
While detectives tried to track down Serbu and her son, Serbu’s husband filed for custody of both of their children.
Serbu’s husband found out about his son’s disappearance when he called the boy’s school to check on his attendance. The man told investigators that his wife was “unstable” and had been diagnosed with “several mental disorders,” court records state.
The man also told investigators he noticed a “remarkable difference” in his wife after the double homicide, court documents state. He said Serbu started calling him from unknown phone numbers and that he didn’t know where she had been living, officials said.
Alright, so she knows her brother is dead at this point. I’m trying to digest this story. Something is way off. She entered the woods with two men and came out with a dying brother. And her excuse was, he raped my daughter. I guess this is possible Right? Right? My problem with this story? She’s mentally ill. Like in a bad way. I’m done. I just don’t get it. I just wasted my time with this story. Lol I just feel like there’s more to this story. I understand the desire for revenge. But THIS?
