“Fifty stabs wounds, a hammer to the head, stuff that a father just don’t want to see,” he said.

Twenty-year-old Cristian Dilan was was arrested in connection with the death and is facing charges of armed burglary of a dwelling, robbery and accessory after the fact to second-degree murder, according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

David said the murder in an otherwise quiet area “shocked the whole neighborhood.”

David said Dilan’s arrest as brought his family peace since the start of the investigation.
