JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The state attorney’s office announced Thursday a major break in the shocking murder of Florida father of four Jared Bridegan, who was gunned down in front of his toddler more than a year ago.
Melissa Nelson, the state attorney for Florida’s Fourth Judicial District, and the Jacksonville Beach Police Department are expected to disclose a “significant development” in the shooting death of Bridegan at a press conference Thursday afternoon.
Bridegan, 33, was executed Feb. 16, 2022, in an upscale suburb of Jacksonville Beach in front of his then-2-year-old daughter, Bexley, when he stepped out of car to move a tire in the road.
Bridegan’s ex-wife, Shanna Gardner-Fernandez and her second husband, Mario Fernandez, 35, remain suspects in the case, according to law enforcement sources.
Henry Tenon, 61, who is connected to Fernandez, was arrested in February on second-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, accessory after the fact and child abuse charges for allegedly gunning down Bridegan.
Charging documents allege that Tenon conspired with at least one accomplice for six weeks to plot the cold-blooded killing.
At the time of the shooting, Tenon worked as a handyman for Fernandez and lived in one of his rental homes in Jacksonville. He has pleaded not guilty.
