(BellevilleNews-Democrat) When the rifle beneath his bed failed, a Clearwater husband addressed a home intruder going after his wife with a machete — repeatedly. Fatally.
Steven Aiosa’s defense of wife Heather Aiosa ended 31-year-old Robert Alcade’s life Tuesday after what Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri described as Alcade’s bizarre, bloody final day.
According to Gualtieri, Alcade’s neighbors at the apartment complex at which he lives called police Tuesday afternoon after they noticed Alcade walking around, acting strangely, claiming people were trying to kill him.

A Clearwater Police officer “determined that Alcade did not meet the criteria of involuntary examination under the Baker Act,” Gualtieri said. “He didn’t committed any crimes. The officer observed his behavior to be somewhat irrational, but didn’t rise to the level for taking him into custody for any offense or under the Baker Act.”
