    Three years later: Sievers murder trial gets closer to trial

    Thursday marked three years since Teresa Sievers was found bludgeoned to death with a hammer inside her Bonita Springs home.

    Her husband, Mark Sievers, is accused of hiring Jimmy Rodgers to kill his wife on June 28, 2015.

    Judge Bruce Kyle said in court on Thursday he wants the trial to start in December. He also ordered the state to turn over medical records of Dr. Sievers’ patients found in the home.

    “This is a unique situation because most doctors don’t keep medical records of their clients in their house,” Kyle said.

    The judge decided there could be relevant information in the files, including a confession.

    Mark Sievers' attorney files court motion for more investigative hours

    Attorneys for the man accused of planning his wife's murder are asking the court to provide them more time to review the case.

    Mark Sievers' attorneys filed a court request this week for 500 extra hours as privately-hired investigators continue to look through evidence.

    If approved, it would cost taxpayers an additional $20,000.

    According to the court motion, the investigator has already logged 300 hours in the case.

    Trial date set in Teresa Sievers murder

    A judge has set a trial date of June 3, 2019 for Mark Sievers and Jimmy Rodgers, accused of killing Bonita Springs doctor, Teresa Sievers.

    Teresa Sievers was found bludgeoned to death in her home in June 2015. Investigators believe her husband, Mark, plotted her murder and hired two men to kill her.

    Mark's friend, Curtis Wright, admitted to the entire scheme. He told deputies he and Jimmy Rodgers drove to Bonita Springs from Missouri to kill Teresa, while Mark and their children were in Connecticut with family.

    Wright took a plea deal, and could testify against Mark and Jimmy in the trial. Throughout the investigation, Wright has changed his story and testimony several times.

    Sievers and Rodgers were both arrested for first degree murder, premeditated with a weapon. The state is seeking the death penalty.

    Teresa Sievers murder trial pushed back, new test results released

    The Teresa Sievers murder trial scheduled to begin in June has been continued.

    Wright took a plea deal. Sievers and Rodgers were expected to go to trial June 3 on first degree murder charges but both prosecutors and defense attorneys said they need more time.

    In hearing Thursday morning, Rodgers' attorneys said they're unable to commit to being ready for a trial anytime soon. Sievers' attorneys said there are still 19 pending motions that need to be approved or denied by a judge.

    Sievers was just granted a mitigation specialist, and his attorneys don't believe that specialist will be ready for June 3.

    New test results were just released yesterday, May 8. Both sides still need to review that evidence.

    Attorneys also said DNA evidence still needs to be reviewed and that review can not be finished by June 3.

    There was a discussion about whether or not a trial could begin in September 2019, but a date has not been selected.

    October trial date scheduled for husband accused in death of Bonita Springs doctor Teresa Sievers

    The man charged in the death of his wife, popular doctor Teresa Sievers, will go to trial Oct. 1, the courts decided today.

    According to court records, Mark Sievers and his co-defendant Jimmy Rodgers, were set for trial June 3, but it was delayed as lawyers review new DNA evidence and sort through motions.

    Sievers' attorney, Michael Mummert, didn't immediately return calls for comment. Rodgers' public defender, Kathleen Fitzgeorge, declined to comment.
