James Hataway charged with attempted first-degree murder in 2008 attack
Hataway is also a person of interest in the May disappearance of Tracy Ocasio

Seminole County prosecutors have upgraded the charges against James Hataway to attempted first-degree murder in a 2008 attack.

Hataway is accused of trying to strangle and then attack a woman who gave him a ride home from a party in August 2008. He was initially charged with battery, false imprisonment, robbery and burglary with a battery.

The State Attorney's Office upgraded the charges today, according to paperwork filed in the 18th Judicial Circuit.

Hataway has become better known for his connection to the May disappearance of Ocoee resident Tracy Ocasio. The two were spotted leaving a Metrowest bar together following an Orlando Magic playoff game. She hasn't been seen since.

Hataway told investigators Ocasio gave him a ride home and then left. He has not been charged in connection to that case.

Seminole County prosecutors say witnesses saw Hataway choking and hitting the woman in the street in the 2008 attack. One of the neighbors recognized Hataway, reports show.

The victim, whom the Orlando Sentinel is not identifying, told police she and Hataway had been at a bar and at a friend's house. She later drove him home.

When she reached over to hug him good night, Hataway grabbed her, wrapped his hands around her neck and choked her, reports show.

She got out of the car and tried to run away but tripped. He grabbed her by the hair, slammed her head into the ground then twisted her neck as if he wanted to break it, according to court records.

She began screaming, and that's when neighbors went outside to check on the noise, and Hataway fled, according to records.

Ocoee police arrested Hataway nearly a year later on an unrelated drug charge, which stemmed from the investigation into Ocasio's disappearance.

Hataway is being on a $250,000 bond in the Seminole County Jail. He had pleaded not guilty after he was charged with the 2008 attack. He has not yet entered a plea for the newly upgraded charge of attempted murder.

I envision something like this could have happened to Tracy.
It would be a pattern of behavior.

I think we are dealing with one of these personalities.

http://scaredmonkeys.net/index.php?topic=7172.0

IF SO, What is important is to realize He Truely believes he is smarter then you and that he most likely keep trophy's of his victims.

He has hid both Tracy and Jennifer in some place he feels very confident that athorities will NOT find her. Which is a clue where to look.
His work and life patterns may give better clue as to where to look.

Last Man Seen With Tracy Ocasio Awaits April Trial
Thursday, March 18, 2010


ORLANDO -- The only person of interest in the disappearance of Tracy Ocasio will go on trial late next month in a separate case in Seminole County.

James Hataway, 29, is charged with attempted first-degree murder, false imprisonment and two other crimes.
     
The alleged incident happened in August 2008.

The victim told authorities she was dropping Hataway off when he choked her and banged her head into the ground.
   
The victim came forward a year later after Orange County authorities named Hataway as a person of interest in Ocasio's case.

Hataway was the last person seen with Ocasio.
 
She vanished in May of last year after the two left a MetroWest bar.

Hataway has not been charged with any wrongdoing in that case.

Judge: April trial possible for man last seen with Tracy Ocasio
March 17, 2010

SANFORD James Virgil Hataway, the man at the center of the high-profile Tracy Ocasio missing person's case, won't go on trial in a separate attempted murder case in Seminole County until late April, at the earliest.

At a routine pre-trial conference Wednesday, attorneys told Circuit Judge Donna McIntosh that the only major work yet to be done in the Seminole case is taking the sworn statement of the woman he's accused of attacking here nine months before Ocasio disappeared.

The woman told authorities that she had driven Hataway, 29 of Ocoee, home Aug. 7, 2008, and was dropping him off when he choked her, tried to snap her neck and banged her head into the ground.
 He's charged with attempted first-degree murder, false imprisonment and two other crimes.

The woman is to be deposed Monday, according to defense attorney Al Parsons. Once that is done, the case should be ready for trial, he and Assistant State Attorney Anna Valentini told the judge Wednesday.

Hataway could go on trial April 26, at the earliest.

He was arrested in the Seminole case after he was named a person of interest in a similar but much higher-profile case in Orange County last year.

Tracy Ocasio disappeared May 27 from a sports bar in Metrowest during an Orlando Magic NBA playoff run. She was last seen leaving the bar with Hataway. Her car was found a half mile from his home.

She has not been found. Hataway has not been charged.

Attorneys in the Seminole case on Wednesday said they expect jury selection to take longer than usual in their case because of all the attention given the Ocasio case.

Parsons said he may want to question potential panel members individually.

Hataway sat silently through Wednesday's five-minute hearing, held in a courtroom at the Seminole County Jail.

 Report: Tip In Ocasio Case Sparks New Search
Tuesday, April 20, 2010 11:44:39 AM
ORLANDO -- A new search is planned for missing Ocoee woman Tracy Ocasio.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, a new tip in Ocasio's disappearance has sparked an upcoming search.

Joe Ocasio, the missing woman's father, said he and volunteers with a local chapter of the Central Florida Search and Rescue will mount a search in Ocoee and MetroWest on May 8.
     
No details were given about the tip.

However, the group will search the area near the Taproom in MetroWest, which was the last place Ocasio had been seen with James Hataway.

Hataway is being held on unrelated attempted first-degree murder charges in a 2008 attack.

A new tip prompts plan for May 8 search.

I hope this pans out, but I have my doubts about that area.

Tracy Ocasio: James Hataway returns to court in separate attempted murder case
 By Rene Stutzman, Orlando Sentinel

6:41 a.m. EDT, April 22, 2010
SANFORD What's likely to be James Hataway's final pretrial conference in an attempted murder case in Seminole County is to begin this morning.

The woman who says Hataway attacked her in Seminole is not Tracy Ocasio, who's been missing for 11 months, but this woman told prosecutors her story after she learned that Hataway was a person of interest in Ocasio's disappearance.

Hataway could go on trial as early as Monday on the Seminole County charges. If convicted, he could spend the rest of his life in prison.

In that case, the woman told authorities that she had been at a party with Hataway Aug. 7, 2008, had driven him home and as they hugged good-bye in the car, he began choking her.

She got out of the car and ran, but he chased her down and began banging her head into the ground, she told authorities. She also says he tried to snap her neck.

She got away after she began screaming and neighbors began to come to her aid.

About a year later, Ocasio disappeared. She was last seen leaving a MetroWest bar with Hataway. He has not been charged in that case.

Date set: James Hataway will be tried for attempted murder
 By Rene Stutzman, Orlando Sentinel

10:07 a.m. EDT, April 22, 2010
SANFORD A judge Thursday tentatively set the attempted murder trial of James Hataway for Monday morning.

Hataway, 29 of Ocoee, is a person of interest in another case: the disappearance last May of Tracy Ocasio.

She's the young woman who was last seen leaving a Metrowest bar with Hataway following an Orlando Magic playoff game.

Her mother, Liz Ocasio, was in court Thursday to watch Hataway and the progress of his attempted murder case in Seminole County. It involves a different young woman, one that Hataway is accused of trying to kill.

Circuit Judge Donna McIntosh tentatively set that trial for Monday.

The judge also set several other cases for trial that same day, so it's possible Hataway's case could be delayed, but as of now, he's to report back to court Monday, prepared to pick a jury.

If convicted, he could spend the rest of his life in prison.

In that case, a woman told authorities that she had been at a party with Hataway Aug. 7, 2008, had driven him home and as they hugged good-bye in the car, he began choking her.

She got out of the car and ran, but he chased her down and began banging her head into the ground, she told authorities. She also says he tried to snap her neck.

She got away after she began screaming and neighbors began to approach.

About a year later, Ocasio disappeared.

Ocasio's mother on Thursday said she intends to sit through Hataway's Seminole County trial from start to finish. She hopes to see him convicted and punished, she said.
