PBSO: Woman arrested in April homicide in Lake Worth


A 34-year-old woman is the second person arrested in the April death of 50-year-old Armando Robles Carlos, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Joann Cintron, who faces charges of first-degree murder and armed robbery, refused to come to court Wednesday morning, so she will be held without bail until her next court date Thursday. Jose Luis Cosme-Sella was arrested at the end of September on the same charges.

The sheriff’s office said Robles Carlos’ body was found in a vacant lot near South H Street, lying on his back with blood coming from his mouth. The Palm Beach County Medical Examiner’s Office said Robles Carlos died of injuries caused by an electrical weapon. He also had blunt-force injuries, according to the report. It’s unclear who used the weapon on the 50-year-old man.

Investigators say video-surveillance footage from the late hours of April 2 shows Robles Carlos park his scooter on the curb near South H Street and Seventh Avenue South and walk down an alleyway with a woman, later identified as Cintron. Soon after, Cosme-Stella and another man followed the two down the alley.

When Cosme-Stella was arrested, he told investigators that he, Cintron and another man who has not been arrested would lure drunk pedestrians in Lake Worth and then rob them.

Cosme-Stella said the group argued with Robles Carlos. He said he pushed the man, then they went through his pockets and took his wallet, cash and scooter keys. Cosme-Stella said when they left the area, Robles Carlos was shaking and asking for help, according to the report. Cosme-Stella did not mention using any kind of stun gun on the man.

DNA from the scene led investigators to Cosme-Stella and Cintron, according to the report.
