Mario Fernandez Saldana, accused of the murder of Jared Bridegan (a Microsoft executive), the ex-husband of his new wife Shanna Gardner-Fernandez, could face the death penalty in Florida. The murder occurred in February 2022. Bridegan was shot dead on the roadside in Jacksonville, while he was with his two-year-old daughter on his way to move a tire from the road. Prosecutors accused Fernandez Saldana of killing Bridegan for personal gain and without any legal or moral justification. They alleged that he wrote three checks to Henry Tenon, who has pleaded guilty to carrying out the murder and faces 15 years to life in prison. Fernandez Saldana and Tenon allegedly had dozens of calls during the time of the murder. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a new law that was put into action just days ago, allowing only eight out of 12 jurors to agree on the death sentence. Previously, a unanimous vote was required.
