Here's a look at what's happening in South Florida this Tuesday morning:

  • Three of the five boys accused of being involved in the burning of 15-year-old Michael Brewer are being charged as adults. [Miami Herald]
  • Swastikas were found on the walls of a Jewish community center in Coral Springs, possibly to mark the anniversary of a 1938 pogrom in Nazi Germany. [Sun-Sentinel]

  • A 90-year-old man was shot in Delray Beach during a carjacking. [Palm Beach Post]
  • According to the IRS, Rothstein's Ponzi scheme dates to at least 2005. [Sun-Sentinel]
