OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – At an unveiling of a new domestic violence vehicle, Sheriff Russ Gibson says he is waiting on Florida’s governor to make a decision in how Nicole Montalvo’s murder case will be prosecuted and by who.

“I know that he and his office, his legal staff are doing their due diligence to review that, and to make the best decision that he can fro the residents, not just for Osceola County and not just for the Montalvo family, but for the entire 9th district.”

It’s the first time the sheriff has addressed the case since State Attorney Aramis Ayala called the sheriff out for making the arrest of Montalvo’s estranged husband and father-in-law too soon.

“It is my understanding that as we stand here today the sheriff still does not know who actually killed Nicole Montalvo,” Ayala said at the news conference on Jan. 17.
