Man sought in homicide of Anthony woman captured in Monroe County

Deangelo Leandrew Shelton Clark

A man sought in the homicide of an Anthony woman was arrested Wednesday in Monroe County.

Marion County sheriff’s detectives had been searching for 30-year-old Deangelo Leandrew Shelton Clark in connection with the death of 20-year-old Kiara Alleyene. Her body was found in a residence located at 2241 NE 78th Lane in Anthony on Wednesday morning after sheriff’s deputies received a call from a family member who was concerned about her well-being.

A post from Kiara Alleyne’s Facebook page on July 11, 2018.

Sheriff’s detectives had received information that Clark had threatened to take Alleyene’s life and his own. An Amber Alert initially was issued but later was canceled when Alleyene’s daughter, 11-month-old Jhene Clark, was found safe with a family member in Marion County.

Clark had been considered armed and dangerous. He was seen driving a 2008 black Mazda CX7 with North Dakota license plate number 328APC before the manhunt for him got under way across Central Florida.

These photos of 11-month-old Jhene Clark and 30-year-old Deangelo Leandrew Shelton Clark were issued in an Amber Alert early Wednesday morning.
