Joseph Bova Trial @ Courtroom 401, Flagler County Courthouse, 1769 E Moody Blvd, Building #1
Sep 23 @ 8:30 am – 5:00 pm

The trial of Joseph Bova is scheduled to begin with jury selection at 8:30 a.m. before Circuit Judge Terence Perkins in Courtroom 401, Flagler County Courthouse, 1769 E Moody Blvd, Building #1. Bova is accused of murdering store clerk Zuheili Rosado in 2013 at the Mobil convenience store on State Road 100 in February 2013. Bova has been at a psychiatric facility for treatment, judged incompetent to stand trial. In February 2019, the administrator of the facility notified the court that Bova “no longer meets the criteria for continued commitment,” suggesting he is ready for trial. In July, the court determined trial should go ahead. The trial is expected to take several days. Bova’s courtroom behavior has been unpredictable: he has previously threatened the life of a judge, and refused to show up at his last hearing on Sept. 6, when the trial date was set.

Joseph Bova in court today. He told the judge his face was distorted because of 'allergies.' A doctor testifying in court today could not explain the distortions. (c FlaglerLive)
