Eerie video shows man act shocked at news of his daughter's death before he was charged with killing her

Eerie video shows man act shocked at news of his daughter's death before he was charged with killing her

Domenico Gigante was charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of armed burglary

A chilling video revealed a father's reaction to finding out that his daughter was dead before being charged for her murder and three others.

Domenico Gigante, 36, was indicted by a grand jury on 28 March 2023 for killing his 15-year-old daughter, her mother, her grandmother, and a man who lived in the victims' home.

It is claimed by authorities that Gigante broke into the home of his daughter, Kiarra Terwilliger, shooting and killing her and her mother Constance Terwilliger, 35, his daughter's grandmother Glenda Terwilliger, 63 and Michael Watson, 36.

It was later revealed that Watson was the father of a nine-year-old and a six-year-old, who were both found unharmed.

Gigante was once in a relationship with his daughter's mother, and deputies suspect that he had been trying to reconnect with his daughter, who'd refused to have a relationship with him, as reported by Law and Crime.

After being told of his daughter's death, he allegedly agreed to go to the Criminal Investigate Services building with his roommate after 'acting in disbelief', according to a report.

Following this, Gigante went inside to get his keys, with his roommate approaching the deputies and stated that he needed to be separate to Gigante as he had some concerns, the police said.

He claimed that he had asked him if he did it, to which Gigante allegedly admitted to shooting his daughter three times.

His roommate allegedly said: “I guess I’m going to go over them [sic] and kill them all.”

After examining surveillance footage, deputies claimed that Gigante went into his pickup truck with a supposed firearm, with other surveillance from his daughter's neighbourhood suggesting that a nearby vehicle allegedly fit the description of the pickup truck in question.

The truck entered the victim's driveway, authorities said, while audio captured gunshots and a woman screaming as well.

Gigante was charged on four counts of first-degree murder and one count of armed burglary while inflicting great bodily harm or death.

On top of this, court records showed that the accused had faced a number of violence allegations throughout the years for crimes that included animal cruelty and a no-contest plea to aggravated assault.

Phil Archer, state attorney of the 18th Judicial Circuit, said: “Even though Gigante's prior convictions could not have produced a prison sentence preventing these horrific crimes, I am aware of the great responsibility placed on my office to use every means possible to protect society from predators and seek justice on behalf of victims.

“This includes asking a jury to impose the ultimate punishment of putting a criminal defendant to death to ensure that outcome.”

Gigante filed a written plea of not guilty on 29 March 2023, according to records, with prosecutors being given 45 days from that point to file a notice of intent to seek the death penalty.

The State filed this Notice of Intent for the 36-year-old for each of the First-Degree Premeditated Murders that he allegedly carried out on 1 March 2023.

Gigante became eligible for the death penalty after being indicted by a Brevard Grand Jury, Space Coast Daily reports.

He has not received a formal sentence nor been convicted of the charges.
