BOYNTON BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boynton Beach resident is facing murder, kidnap and sex assault charges following his arrest overnight by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. (News app readers access our full report).

Richard Lange of 139 Buffet Key in Boynton was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 11:47 p.m.

It was not immediately clear what led to the arrest of 60-year-old Lange. The arrest report was still being processed as of 5:45 a.m. Friday. The jail occasionally omits key information from its booking reports. “Attempted” homicide charges are frequently written as actual “homicide” by the jail. It was not clear whether that was the case with Lange.

The official charges based on jail records, however, are: “homicide — murder first degree premeditated,” “kidnap, false imprisonment – adult,” and “sexual assault with weapon or force, sexual battery (on a victim) 12 years of age or older.”

We expect an update from PBSO later in the morning. Check throughout the day.
