2 charged in murder along I-75

PASCO (FOX 13) -

Two men are under arrest in connection with a brutal murder on I-75.

Justin Gonzalez and Jesse Blair are charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. They are expected to appear in court Monday.

The two reportedly told detectives they stabbed a man to death because he was "a snitch." A Pasco County deputy found a car parked on the shoulder of I-75 near State Road 54.

He found Leon Mascorro of Bristol critically injured in the car. He was taken to the hospital but did not survive.

Gonzalez is from Tennessee. Blair lives in Lakeland.

The sheriff tells us the suspects were inside the care, with one of them in the back seat smoking a cigarette.
