Woman Charged in 2015 Murder of Seminole Man
The man’s girlfriend, who was pregnant, was having an affair with the accused, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.
PINELLAS COUNTY – Sheriff’s deputies have accused a St. Petersburg woman of shooting a man to death in 2015.
Priscilla “Dawn” Houck, 38, of 2444 32nd Ave. N in St. Petersburg, was charged Thursday (March 2) with one count of first degree murder. Deputies said she shot and killed 24-year-old Christopher Wayne Rotenberger.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said Mr. Rotenberger was killed about 3:30 a.m. Nov. 11, 2015, at his residence in the unincorporated Seminole area. After an extensive investigation that lasted more than 15 months, deputies said they determined that Rotenberger’s long-term girlfriend, 24-year-old Stephanie Dalrymple, who was pregnant with Rotenberger’s child at the time of his death, was also having an intimate relationship with Houck.
Houck got a gun after she found out about Dalrymple’s pregnancy and she began planning Rotenberger’s murder days before his death, deputies said.
