FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA

54-year old Eric Pierson was released from prison in September of 2020, after serving 27-years of a 40-year prison sentence for murdering 17-year old, Kristina Whitaker, who was beaten and strangled to death in 1993. Pierson pleaded guilty to 2nd degree murder in that case. Now, Pierson has been charged with murdering another woman whose body was found in a canal, after being missing for three weeks, according to a report from CBS NEWS.

Pierson was charged with 1st degree murder on Saturday. He’s accused of murdering 33-year old, single-mother of four, Erika Verdecia. Pierson was arrested just hours after Verdecia’s body was found near Fort Lauderdale. Police say Pierson confessed to killing Verdecia. He allegedly stabbed her four times with a screwdriver, on September 25th.
