Five accused of luring Florida teen to gruesome death

Fifteen-year-old Amber Wright and Seath Jackson, also 15, at the beginning of March were in what looked like a young normal relationship. After breaking up weeks after Jackson posted on Facebook his love for Wright, Wright, along with four other people, has been accused of leading Jackson to a planned gruesome death, reported the Los Angeles Times.

According to Marion County Sheriff's Office detectives, Wright, her 16-year-old brother Kyle Hooper, and three other older friends devised a deadly plan in which Jackson was beaten, shot several times, and then burned to ashes, reported the Los Angeles Times.

According to the Gainesville Sun, there was a series of facebook posts indicating growing tension between Wright and one-time boyfriend Jackson.

One of the suspects, 18-year-old Charlie Kay Ely, told a reporter that the group went after Seath for hitting Amber, but that has still not been confirmed, reported the Gainesville Sun.
