Giambanco had developed a reputation as a burglary suspect while on release from jail following a prior arrest in Brevard County.
Giambanco has a long criminal history, which the police say includes 22 offenses.
Giambanco was detained for assaulting a police officer a few days before the alleged murder and was freed the following day. He was subsequently re-arrested following the homicide and was being held in the Brevard County Jail on separate charges when authorities accused him of murder, according to police.
