Florida man charged with murder for stabbing

July 28, 2018

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A South Florida man has been charged with murder after being accused of stabbing another man during a dispute over a handicapped parking spot.

Oswald Zambrano died Thursday, more than 10 days after the confrontation.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that Zambrano was parked in a handicapped spot outside a daycare when Julio Ramos berated him for illegally using the parking spot.

Authorities say Ramos stabbed Zambrano as the argument escalated.

Ramos is charged with second-degree murder.

Another death from a dispute over a handicapped parking spot across the state has put a renewed focus on Florida’s “stand your ground law.”

In Clearwater Florida, a white man who shot an unarmed black man has not been arrested as authorities determine whether the self-defense law gives him immunity from prosecution.
