Alice Willis downplays her role in Bobby Kent's murder: Bobby Kent (May 12, 1973 – July 14, 1993) was an American man who was murdered by seven people, including his best friend, Martin Joseph "Marty" Puccio, Jr. (born March 21, 1973) in Weston, Florida. Toward the beginning of 1993, Puccio (aged 20) began dating Lisa Connelly (aged 18). Being frustrated by how much time her boyfriend spent with Kent (aged 20), Connelly tried to distract Kent from Puccio by setting up her friend Alice (Ali) Willis (aged 17) with Kent. Kent and Ali dated for a few weeks but Kent was abusive toward Ali and she cut off the relationship. In June, Puccio confided to Connelly that Kent had been abusive to him quite often over the years. Connelly tried to convince him to cut off his friendship, but Puccio did not seem able to do that. By that time, Connelly knew she was pregnant by Puccio and was determined that Kent was not going to get in her way of a permanent relationship with Puccio. Although Connelly admitted to having sex with Kent as well as Puccio, she maintained the baby was Puccio's. Allegedly, Connelly decided that Kent needed to be eliminated permanently and started talking to Puccio and other friends about murdering Kent. On July 13, 1993, Connelly called Willis and told her that "Bobby Kent was planning to come to Palm Bay (where Willis was living) to murder her and smother her baby (by a previous relationship) unless she returned to Broward County to date him again." Willis claimed Connelly asked her to come to Connelly's house to discuss murdering Bobby Kent. Willis went to Connelly's house and brought two friends, her current boyfriend, Donald Semenec (aged 17), and Heather Swallers (aged 18). Connelly had previously contacted a self-proclaimed "hit man," named Derek Kaufman (aged 20), who had been recommended by some friends. When Willis, Semenec and Swallers arrived, they all went to Kaufman's home. They told him they wanted him to get a gun so they could kill Kent that night, but Kaufman told them he could not get a gun that quickly. Willis, Connelly, Semenec and Swallers then went back to Connelly's house and were joined by her cousin, Derek Dzvirko (aged 19). Puccio apparently was not a part of these meetings on July 13. On the night of July 14, around 11:30 p.m., the seven joined together at Puccio's house and made their plans. They had a lead pipe, two knives, and a baseball bat. Puccio had asked Kent to join them, which he did around 11:45 p.m. They headed out to a construction site. Apparently Kent thought he might be able to have sex with his former girlfriend, Willis. As soon as they got there, Willis – in accordance with the plan – took Kent off to a secluded spot where they were talking. Swallers joined them there. While she and Willis distracted Kent, Semenec came up and stabbed Kent in the neck with a knife, which was the first blow. When Kent asked for Puccio's help, Puccio stuck a knife in his stomach. Kent yelled out, "Marty, whatever I did, I'm sorry!", but Puccio continued to stab him. When Kent tried to flee, Puccio, Semenec, and Derek Kaufman tackled, stabbed, and beat him. Puccio then slit Kent's throat and hit his head against the ground. Kaufman then approached and hit Kent in the head with the baseball bat, which was the final blow. After this, Dzvirko, Semenec, Puccio, and Kaufman helped dump Kent's body on the edge of the shore of the marsh, in the belief that alligators would eat the decaying body. A few days later, Dzvirko led Detective Frank Illaraza of the Broward Sheriff's Office to Kent's body.
Alice Willis was charged with second-degree murder and sentenced to 40 years in imprisonment on May 31, 1995, but reduced on appeal to 17 years for the murder charge and 15 years for the conspiracy charge, and was released from secure custody on September 16, 2001; as of 2011, she is under community supervision.
