NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. - A Lee County man wanted for murder is no longer a threat. After two weeks on the run, authorities shot and killed Billy Ray Retherford, Jr. And that has his neighbors breathing a sigh of relief.
Not only was Retherford wanted for the murder of Debra Striano, authorities also believe he is responsible for killing Gregory Imhoff Tuesday afternoon. Neighbors who lived near Retherford worried he could come back at any time.
His nephew, Dustin Jaye was also arrested in connection with Striano's death. He is still behind bars and expected back in court next month.
