Investigators say a teacher who was found dead at her Spring Hill home was romantically involved with the man accused of murdering her.

Hernando County Sheriff's detectives on Friday revealed new details about their investigation into the murder of Central High English teacher Lee-Anne Shoeman.

Shoeman's body was discovered in her home on May 19, after she failed to report to work that day.

Jerome Sheridan, 49, was arrested and charged with her murder.

Investigators say Sheridan and Shoeman had been in a romantic relationship for several years.

On the morning of May 18, investigators say the two got into an argument and Sheridan became enraged and hit Shoeman several times, using his fists and objects in her home, which killed her.

Sheridan is being held at the Hernando County Detention Center in Brooksville.

    Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is changing management rules of invasive lionfish to remove them from state waters.
