Clearwater Police announced the arrest of 16-year-old Mychal King on Thursday. He is accused in the January murder of Jason Taylor Paul, the city’s first homicide of 2013.
Police said King admitted to killing Paul for no reason other than he had a hard day with his family that night of January 6, and “just wanted to kill the first person he saw.”
Police say 22-year-old Jason Taylor Paul was stabbed multiple times while riding his bike home from work late.
King will be charged with 1st Degree Murder. Detectives say he has a long criminal history and was already in jail on other charges.
