A Panama City Man Is Behind Bars Being Held on an Open Count of Murder

Panama City officers arrested David Michael Benson.

They say Benson got in a fight in front of a home at 408 Spring Avenue back on April 24th.

During that fight, 41-year-old Rebecca Bowser was hit in the head with what police say was a blunt object. She was taken to the hospital and died about 2-weeks later.

Police say Benson did not even know the woman. He’s being held at the Bay County Jail.

Police tell NewsChannel Seven his past includes numerous arrests for violent behavior.
