LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A Cape Coral murder suspect was in court Thursday morning with an unusual plea to the judge.
"It's just that, this has to do with the pre-trial release. I've been on my job for, like, 23 years. If I'm not released, I could lose my job," said Porfirio Rivera, the man charged with Second Degree Murder in the stabbing death of his wife, Anna.
He told a Lee County judge today he's concerned with keeping his job. Yesterday, Cape Coral Police arrested the 50-year-old at the hospital where he was being treated for self-inflicted stab wounds.
Police discovered Anna's body in the couple's kitchen on Sunday.
