Francia Vargas-BrevickEarlier today, Agents with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office upgraded the charges of 52-year-old DAVID GLEN BREVICK, of 7030 Heron’s Landing Drive, Rockledge, charging him with Premeditated First Degree Murder. Brevick is currently being detained at the Brevard County Jail on a No Bond status.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred at the residence in Rockledge on August 8, 2014, at approximately 11:36 P.M. Deputies had responded to the residence after Brevick made a 911 emergency call to the Sheriff’s Office indicating that two men had entered the residence and were injuring his wife. Deputies arrived at the residence to find it locked and secure. Brevick opened the door for deputies, advising that the men were still inside. Upon searching the residence, deputies were unable to locate any intruders. They did locate Brevick’s wife, 56-year-old Francia Vargas-Brevick, on the bedroom floor, unresponsive. The victim was transported to Holmes Regional Medical Center where she was listed in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit.

On August 10, 2014, the victim died as a result of her injuries. The autopsy was performed today by the Brevard County Medical Examiner’s Office, who ruled the manner of death as homicide.
