A Miami, Florida detective was suspended for three days after he pursued a relationship with the wife of a suspect he arrested. According to the Miami Herald, Detective Edward Hill arrested David Superville for his involvement in the murder of an electronics salesman. Police say Superville was hired by a jealous Brazilian businessman to follow the salesman.
Superville’s criminal defense attorney believes the credibility of the detective is a major issue in the case. In particular, there is no physical evidence or eyewitness statements, just the word of a biased detective.
