ROCKLEDGE, Florida — Agents with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office upgraded the charges against 52-year-old David Glen Brevick of Rockledge, Florida to Premeditated First Degree Murder after his wife, 56- year-old Francia Vargas-Brevick, died in the hospital two days after Brevick was arrested and charged with Attempted First Degree Murder
