Two former soldiers have been arrested for the double murder of a man and a woman who were killed and robbed in Florida during an arms sale.
Serafin & # 39; Danny & # 39; Lorenzo and Deana Lorenzo were found dead in April last year in a parking lot at Galleria Square in Estero, Florida, NBC2 reported.
Danny, 53, was shot seven times and his wife Deana, 51, had eleven bullet wounds, legal documents revealed at that time.
Alex Zwiefelhofer, 22, and Craig Lang, 29, are now accused of robbing and killing the couple to get money to travel to Venezuela.

Danny and Deana had traveled to Lee County to buy soldiers' weapons after responding to an online ad from a man named & # 39; Jeremy & # 39 ;, said a federal indictment.
The couple had withdrawn $ 3,000 in cash for the purchase of four Glocks, two 9 mm pistols and nine powerful guns, the Washington Post reported.
It is believed that the soldiers then lured Danny and Deana to the parking lot of Galleria, where they were robbed and killed.
The two, both of whom had been released from the army, hoped to & # 39; participate in an armed conflict against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela & # 39 ;, revealed a federal criminal complaint.

They would have wanted the $ 3,000 to finance their trip, and had the intention of taking the weapons with them.
Zwiefelhofer and Lang were reportedly detained by Kenyan authorities after they tried to enter South Sudan in 2017.
In an interview by a customs and border protection officer, Lang said he fought the pair with the & # 39; Right Sector & # 39; – a Ukrainian nationalist paramilitary movement.
The FBI now hopes to be able to extradite both men back to Florida.
