Man accused of killing Officer Jobbers-Miller enters not guilty plea

In court Wisner Desmaret, 29, waived his right to appear and entered a written plea of not guilty at his arraignment Monday morning.

Desmaret was indicted on first-degree murder charges in the death of Fort Myers police Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller who died from his injuries after being shot in the line of duty in July.

Desmaret was transferred to the Collier County jail as “… a cautionary move due to the nature of the crime,” according to LCSO.
