NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - A 49-year-old man from southwest Florida has died while awaiting trial on first-degree murder charges in the deaths of his wife and son.

A Collier County Sheriff’s spokeswoman told the Naples Daily News (https://bit.ly/1oU3DCr ) that Jose Suazo died under hospice care on Tuesday.

Suazo was indicted in February for the premeditated killings of 35-year-old Johana Nunez Ruiz and 18-year-old Joseph Suazo in August.

He was arrested in Lee County after the killings. Deputies say he told several witnesses that he killed his wife and son and was hoping God could forgive him.

No further details were immediately available.
