PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - Two people wanted as "persons of interest" in Florida in the death of a Western New York native were captured over the weekend.

Police tell reporters in Florida that the couple confessed to the murder during questioning.

The victim, Alisa Kerman, 52, attended Sweet Home schools and the University at Buffalo before moving to Port St. Lucie on Florida's "Gold Coast," just north of West Palm Beach.

On Thursday, she was found dead in her bedroom by a teenage girl who lived at the home. The official cause of death is listed as "blunt force trauma to the head."

The public information officer for the Port St. Lucie Police Department, Master Sergeant Frank Sabol, told us that Kerman moved back to Port St. Lucie from the Tampa area about three years ago, but he didn't know when she had moved to Florida from New York. He said that her mother, Mildred Kerman, still lives in New York.

Weingard and Scordamaglia lived at Kerman's home. Before their capture, Florida residents were warned that the couple was considered armed and dangerous because the victim had guns in her house which were missing.

It is believed they left the home in Kerman's red 2003 Chevrolet Silverado.

Neighbors said Kerman owned a bounce house company. Some of the equipment could be seen in the garage. They said she was hired for children's birthday parties.

"They would set up the bouncy houses," said neighbor Joe Dellaguardia. "They would clean them up. There was never anything. It was just craziest thing seeing all these cops here yesterday. It was just crazy."
