John DeJesus is facing murder charges in the death of his girlfriend, Yoliz Marie Borerro, but managed to bond out of jail based on a technicality. DeJesus was initially arrested on drug charges right after the murder when police found the narcotics in his home in Southwest Orlando.

DeJesus' Public Defender told the judge:

“Before you take action on that bond, he was arrested yesterday on that [drug] charge and he bonded out. Then the police wanted to question him further. When he stopped cooperating they arrested him again on the alleged offense of the grand theft and the possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. They knew about that charge when they arrested him on the possession of the drugs, he did not commit a new law offense upon his release, and therefore his bond should not be revoked on that case."

This was DeJesus' second appearance in front to f a judge this week alone; he was in front of a judge for possessing a gun as a convicted felon.

Since being released on bond, DeJesus is nowhere to be found.
