ST. PETERSBURG, Florida (AP) - A St. Petersburg home where two people were killed is being rebuilt as the neighborhood recovers from the crime.
The Tampa Tribune reports Mitch Harrison is building a new house in place of the one where one of Kenwood's most heinous crimes took place.
Two of Harrison's friends were renovating his kitchen nearly a year ago when convicted felon Michael Scott Norris invaded the house and killed both men. He then set the house on fire.
Norris pleaded guilty to two first-degree murder charges and was sentenced to life in prison.
Harrison was shopping when his friends were shot.
In December, he had what was left of his home bulldozed. Harrison said decided to stay and rebuild the American craftsman-style bungalow for himself and the neighborhood.
