ALARMING ALLEGATIONS FROM THE SHERIFF.

ITS ALL NEW AT 4:00.

REPORTER: IN A LETTER TO THE GOVERNOR, SENT ON WEDNESDAY, AND OBTAINED BY WESH 2, OSCEOLA COUNTY SHERIFF RUSS GIBSON LAYS OUT HIS CASE, FOR REMOVING STATE ATTORNEY ARAMIS AYALA, FROM THE

NICOLE MONTALVO MURDER CASE.

HE INCLUDES THE ALARMING CLAIM, THAT, QUOTE, HER STAFF WAS DIRECTED TO NOT ASSIST MY DETECTIVES IN OBTAINING EVIDENCE FROM THE SUSPECTS PHONES NOR IN OBTAINING TESTIMONY FROM A KEY

WITNESS.

HE DOESNT SAY WHO THAT WITNESS IS.

BUT THATS THE ALLEGATION, AYALA REACTED FIERCELY TO ON FRIDAY, BEFORE WED SEEN THIS LETTER.

>> THIS COULD NOT BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.

WE HAVE ENCOURAGED AND REQUESTED THE SHERIFFS OFFICE TO DO ADDITIONAL INVESITGATION IN THIS CASE NEARLY EVERY SINGLE WEEK.

REPORTER: MONTALVOS HUSBAND, CHRISTOPHER OTERO-RIVERA, AND HIS FATHER, ANGEL RIVERA, WERE ARRESTED IN OCTOBER FOR HER MURDER.

HER DISMEMBERED BODY, WAS ALLEGEDLY FOUND ON THEIR PROPERTY.

EVEN SO, FORMAL CHARGES, HAVE NEVER BEEN FILED AGAINST THEM, AND TIME IS RUNNING OUT TO DO SO, BEFORE A LEGAL DEADLINE, SOON AFTER THE ARRESTS, GIBSON, MADE THIS COMMENT.

>> IN MY HUMBLE OPINION, A DEATH SENTENCE CASE.

REPORTER: IN HIS LETTER TO THE GOVERNOR, HE SAYS AFTER THAT, HIS INTERACTIONS WITH AYALA WENT SOUTH.

AYALA HAS BEEN VOCAL IN THE PAST, ABOUT OPPOSING THE DEATH PENALTY.

GIBSON CLAIMS THAT AYALA TOLD HIM, QUOTE, THE STATE ATTORNEYS OFFICE WOULD NOT BE SEEKING A FIRST DEGREE MURDER INDICTMENT.

HE SAYS HE MET WITH AYALA, AND HE HER ACTIONS LEFT HIM BELIEVING, QUOTE, HER OFFICES INACTION HAS NOT BEEN ABOUT THE LACK OF EVIDENCE, BUT ABOUT ER DESIRE TO ADVANCE HER POSITION

AGAINST THE DEATH PENALTY.

GIBSON SAYS AYALA TOLD HIM, THEY COULDNT MAKE A 1ST DEGREE MURDER CASE, WITHOUT HAVING A MANNER OF DEATH, WHICH IN MONTALVOS CASE, IS UNKNOWN AT THIS TIME.
