A Florida man was charged with the death of a Pennsylvania woman whose body was found by a fisherman in a bay near Tampa, officials said Wednesday.
According to Ruben Delgado, interim chief of the Tampa police, Lutz’s Robert Kessler had already been detained on police charges for drugs when he was arrested and charged with the second murder of Stephanie Krone Oberholtz. Kessler has also been charged with corpse abuse.

On November 11, fishermen found legs with three heart tattoos in three names, Sean, Greg, and Zack, in McKay Bay near downtown Tampa, Fox-affiliated WTVT-TV reported. Another fisherman found a human body in the bay the next day.
Authorities are not sure how long Oberholtz’s body has been in the water.
Oberholtz was with Kessler when her family reported that she had gone missing earlier this month. After seeing her tattoo in the news, they contacted Tampa authorities, according to Delgado.
Kessler told investigators that he met Oberholtz at a fast-food restaurant and said he lived outside the car. He invited her to be with him, Delgado said.
Oberholtz was with him, but Kessler, who disappeared a few weeks ago, was found to be a lie, the chief said. According to Delgado, the detective found her blood while searching her car and Kessler’s house.

Kessler was put in jail several times, Delgado said, mainly because of drug crimes.
