Murder suspect tricked wife’s parents, saying she was OK

PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) — Investigators in Florida say a 25-year-old man charged with killing his in-laws and brother-in-law also killed his wife as long as a year ago and had been tricking them into believing she was OK.

Police found the decomposing bodies of 71-year-old Richard Ivancic, 59-year-old Laura Ivancic and 25-year-old Nicholas Ivancic inside their Tarpon Springs home on New Year’s Day. Shelby Svensen, who also goes by Shelby Nealy, was arrested two days later outside Cleveland with his mother-in-law’s vehicle.

Police said then that his 21-year-old wife Jamie was missing under suspicious circumstances. Now they’ve found her body, in the backyard of their home in Port Richey.

Pasco County Sheriff’s Col. Jeff Harrington said during a Tuesday news conference that Svensen admitted to all four killings.
