ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - FOX 35 is working to learn when a man accused in a brutal double murder will be transferred to the county where the crime took place.
Jean Macean is still behind bars in Orange County on no bond but he's facing charges in Volusia County. That's where Brenda and Terry Aultman were killed.
Daytona Beach Police say Macean confessed to killing the couple during Bike Week. Even with an alleged confession, it's still not clear if investigators have a motive in this case.
The Aultman's were found next to their bikes, stabbed multiple times and had their throats slashed.
Jean Robert Macean
Police said they were able to track down Macean after getting more than 100 tips and using his credit card receipts. He's now charged with 2 counts of first-degree murder.
FOX 35 did speak with his stepfather after Macean's arrest. He also granted us exclusive access to Macean's apartment room off Pointe Vista Circle where he was arrested.
His stepfather says police searched Macean's room for hours looking for clues and says he's always had a difficult relationship with his stepson. His stepfather says Macean's mother died about 6 months ago from COVID and he's not sure how his stepson earned a living.
