    The judge instructed DCF to follow up to find all possible outcomes for the future of the girls. To date, they have been homeschooled and their caregiver wants to enroll them in school, but they haven't been vaccinated. DCF is hoping to reconnect them with a tutor.

    There was some discussion about whether the two girls would have contact with their father - it was the only time the murder suspect showed much reaction. Eventually, all sides agreed that supervised phone calls would be best continued, paired with continued therapy for both of them.

    "I believe the trauma the children are suffering not having any contact with their father would be more traumatic for them," said Pam Montgomery, regional conflict counsel.

    If Sievers were to post the $4.43 million bond, the judge would make a new decision concerning contact between Sievers and his daughters.

    "We would hold a shelter review to determine what would be done for his visits."

    Sievers' mother refused to comment Monday, but Teresa's family remains hopeful that while the criminal system answers questions about her murder, her two daughters won't be forgotten.

    "We trust the judicial system. Everyone is concerned about the girls and that's a beautiful thing," Annie Lisa said.

    She said the girls are doing great considering the circumstance.

    The next scheduled court hearing in the case is March 21st.

    So, if I'm reading this correctly, they are currently with a family friend. Interesting. Usually DCF tries to place kids with family.

    Defendant in Teresa Sievers case tells authorities he was first to hit her in the head with a hammer

    Curtis Wayne Wright told authorities he was the first one to hit Dr. Teresa Sievers in the head with a hammer in an attack at her Bonita Springs home that killed her, according to testimony released Friday.

    Wright told investigators he struck her "just a couple of times" in the head with a hammer.

    "You know, I have shoulder problems so I guess I wasn't hitting her hard enough," he said.

    The details are included in a motion filed Friday by Mark Sievers' attorney to have Wright's grand jury testimony revealed. Mark Sievers, 48, and a second defendant 26-year-old Jimmy Rodgers face first-degree murder charges in the 46-year-old doctor's death.

    Thousands of pages of photos released in Sievers murder case

    The State Attorney's Office has released additional documents from the Teresa Sievers murder investigation as the case against Mark Sievers moves forward in court.

    More than a year after the death of the Bonita Springs doctor, thousands of documents are still streaming in from the investigation.

    The documents we received from the State Attorney's Office on Wednesday are pages and pages of thumbnail photos directly from the cell phone of Mark Sievers.

    There were hundreds of photos removed from the documents we received as well.

    The State Attorney's Office told us some were removed because of the investigation and some involved obscene material.


    Judge questions Sievers attorney qualifications

    Mark Sievers, the Bonita Springs man accused of plotting to kill his wife in a high-profile murder case, could soon have a new attorney.

    Judge Bruce Kyle expressed concern during a case management hearing Thursday that defense attorney Michael Mummert isn’t qualified to represent clients who face the death penalty. The state attorney’s office intends to seek the death penalty for Sievers and co-defendant Jimmy Rodgers if they’re convicted on first-degree murder charges in the May 2015 bludgeoning death of Dr. Teresa Sievers.

    Mummert and partner Antonio Faga have only handled three murder cases combined. Of those three, only two went to trial.

    Eleven Hundred Miles to Murder

    The shocking murder of Dr. Teresa Sievers in Bonita Springs, Florida, was a huge story -- especially for reporter Jessica Lipscomb, who covered crime for the Naples Daily News.

    “This mother of two who was killed brutally inside her home was horrifying to people,” Lipscomb told “48 Hours” correspondent Erin Moriarty.”I think any time there is a beautiful, successful woman who is murdered, that’s sort of what society pays attention to -- for better or for worse.”

    The 46-year-old doctor had cut short a family vacation in upstate New York and flown home alone on Sunday night, June 28, 2015, so she could see patients the next morning.

    “She … comes back to here to the Southwest Florida International Airport,” Lipscomb explained. “…there’s security footage of her rolling her suitcase through the terminal.”


    “She calls Mark, tells him she’s … safe. And then,” Lipscomb said,” gets in her car and heads back to their house.

    Investigators believe that as soon as Dr. Sievers walked into her kitchen, she was killed – struck repeatedly with a hammer.

    “You kind of put yourself in her shoes,” Lipscomb continued, “rolling your suitcase through the door, and then to be attacked by someone from behind is -- it’s hard to imagine.”

    Teresa Sievers' brother files wrongful-death suit against Mark Sievers

    The brother of Teresa Sievers, the Bonita Springs doctor who was found bludgeoned to death in her home two years ago, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Mark Sievers, who is accused of orchestrating the 2015 slaying of his wife.

    The complaint asks for a jury trial and argues that the “surviving natural persons” lost the “future support and services” of Teresa Sievers, the amount of her probable net income, her companionship, and experienced mental pain and suffering due to her death.

    Good for him! I believe in wrongful death lawsuits. Sometimes the killers are more upset about losing their money than having a rap sheet. :mad:
