Jacksonville Man Charged with Rape, Strangulation of Woman; the Body of Dominique Harden, 21, Was Found in Her Apartment

Article excerpt

A Jacksonville man was charged Monday with raping and strangling a woman whose body was found over the weekend.

Jermaine D. Wilson, 23, was one of the last people seen with Dominique Harden, 21, before she was killed, an arrest report said. She was found dead Saturday in her apartment in the 2300 block of Westmont Street on the Southside.

The report said Wilson was interviewed Monday by homicide detectives and provided information that led to his arrest.

Wilson was being held without bail Tuesday at the Duval County jail.

State records show Wilson was sentenced to two years in prison for a 2003 child abuse case. He was released in October 2005, according to the records.

CLERK SHOOTS SUSPECT, BUT ROBBERY CONTINUES

A clerk at a Jacksonville service station shot a robber Tuesday morning, but couldn't stop the robbery, police said.

Two men came into the Broward BP at 1188 Broward Road about 10:30 a.m. While one pointed a gun, the other jumped the counter and began struggling with the clerk, said Sgt. Bill Vanaman of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

The clerk had his own gun and shot the man struggling with him, but then he was disarmed, Vanaman said. The robbers then took the store's money and left in an off-white, four-door Saturn, police said.
