Two Jailed for Woman's Murder

A Pensacola man and a teenager are in custody for the stabbing death of a woman.

The body of 53-year-old Patricia Findley was wrapped in blankets, wired in a shopping cart and dumped into Bayou Grande.

Escambia County investigators say 22-year-old Steven Pratt and 15-year-old George Smith have confessed to the killing.

The woman's body was found Friday by a man who reeled the cart up to his dock. The suspects say they weighed the cart down with a concrete block and stepping stones.

The victim lived off and on with Pratt's family.

Pratt is being held in the Escambia County Jail without bond. Smith is in the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice.
