Javonne Marece White, 19, and Jasmine Yvonne Munro, 25, are being held without bond in the Orange County jail and face charges of felony first-degree murder and carjacking, according to WESH.

White and Munro are accused of attacking 78-year-old Uken Cummings in the parking lot of a CVS in Pine Hills on Jan. 30 around 3:30 p.m.

Cummings was returning to his Mercedes when the suspects allegedly shot him after a confrontation, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said, and previously reported by FrontPageDetectives.

As the pair fled the scene in the elderly victim’s car, they backed up over him and then ran him over a second time, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Orange County Sheriff John Mina called those responsible for Cummings death "heartless murderers."

“We're people who don't bother anybody, I don't understand how any of this happened,” said the victim’s son, who did not wish to be identified. “It's bad, man, and I know for people, the elderly like that, it makes them not want to come out at all, and that's no way to live. It's senseless.”

Before the arrests, Cummings’ daughter addressed the alleged killers in an interview with WOFL. “All I want to say is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” she said. “You will not rest.”
