Woman charged in shooting death of 81-year-old St. Augustine man

Jill Agonis, 65, is charged with second-degree murder with a firearm in connection to the death of William Arthur Keefe, 81, who was found dead in St. Augustine.

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — A woman was arrested Tuesday and is facing charges in the murder of an 81-year-old man who was shot dead in St. Augustine, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.

Jill Sheila Agonis, 65, is charged with second-degree murder with a firearm in connection to the death of William Arthur Keefe, 81.

Deputies said Keefe died Oct. 18 of multiple gunshot wounds inside a home in the 900 block of Oxford Drive. 

That day, St. Johns County deputies said they received a call from someone in a northeastern state who said a St. Augustine resident was going to harm herself and another person. Deputies eventually found Agonis sitting a vehicle in a driveway with self-inflicted "cutting/stabbing" wounds, a news release said.

Agonis was arrested Tuesday with help from the Clay County Sheriff's Office after she was released from the hospital.
