TAMPA - Still reeling from the brutal slaying of his teenage son in December, Ron Tomlinson took another hit this week when he learned a church Web site was seeking donations to defend the man accused of killing him.

"It angers me that they would do something like that," an incredulous Tomlinson said Friday afternoon. "I just couldn't believe that."

Tomlinson's 13-year-old son, Stephen, a skateboarder who was acquainted with most of his neighbors in the Logan Gate Village subdivision, including Joshua Rosa, the suspect, was found dead in woods near a community park Dec. 8. Hillsborough County sheriff's investigators said he had been strangled.

Sheriff's deputies arrested Rosa a month later, saying genetic tests linked him to the body. Rosa said he happened upon the body and tried to revive the teenager. He maintains his innocence.

Is there an argument somewhere in this post that I'm missing?
