Connie Serbu Arrested For Murdering Accused rapist, Xavier Sierra

Naples, FL – A Florida woman took justice into her own hands, rather than calling the police, is in custody for murdering the man who allegedly raped her six-year-old daughter.

Connie Serbu, age 41, is charged in the July 2016 murder of Xavier Sierra, age 18, according to The New York Daily News.  Police said that Serbu’s daughter told her mother over the 2016 Memorial Day Weekend, that Sierra had molested her on two separate occasions several years ago, when she was just six-years-old.

They said that Serbu talked often with friends after that about wanting to kill Sierra.  A friend urged her to tell the police and let them handle the issue, but she continued planning the attack on Sierra.

Serbu also told her husband that she was “going to do something,” and that he would have to raise her children alone.

On July 7, 2016, the bodies of Sierra and another man, John Vargas, age 29, of New York, were found in an undeveloped area near the 700 block of Goodlette-Frank Road, according to Naples Daily News.  The bodies were discovered by police who had responded to a report of shots fired.

According to court documents, “Connie Serbu stated that she planned on confronting Xavier Sierra regarding the molestation of her daughter”.  On that day in July, she texted Sierra and offered to pay him if he would help her with building some bunk beds.

Vargas is Serbu’s brother, and is “intellectually disabled”.  He was in Naples visiting her and went with her when she left to pick up Sierra.  Serbu also had with her a pair of guns, two stun guns, a potato to use as a silencer, an ice pick, plastic gloves, and paper towels.

When they picked Sierra up, Vargas questioned him about about the sexual assault while Serbu drove to a wooded area. When they arrived, Sierra tried to run, but was not able to get away.

Sierra and Vargas struggled over a gun, and Vargas was shot during the struggle.  Sierra was shot six times; both he and Vargas died from their wounds.

When police responded, they found Serbu’s car parked at the end of a dirt road, and took her in for questioning. Court records said that she told officers that “it was all her fault,” and asked police to arrest her.

Serbu’s hands also tested positive for gunshot residue.

She said, “So, I don’t care, he raped my daughter … she told me everything.”

Serbu had been in custody since February at the Naples Jail Center on suspicion of custodial interference, and has been served with a warrant for second-degree murder in Sierra’s death.

No charges have been filed or are expected in the death of John Vargas.
