Attorneys to discuss evidence in John Jonchuck case

Pinellas County

A motion hearing took place in the John Jonchuck murder case on Monday.

Attorneys discussed some of the evidence in the case and possibly excluding it.

Jonchuck is accused of throwing his 5-year-old daughter Phoebe Jonchuck over the Dick Misener Bridge to her death in 2015.

According to court documents, Jonchuck said he heard voices and that he and Phoebe had to die or everybody was going to hell.

The State Attorney’s Office said it will not pursue the death penalty against Jonchuck.

Jonchuck is charged with first-degree murder in the death of his daughter. 

Now, if found guilty, Jonchuck will be sentenced to life in prison without parole.
