’48 Hours’ to feature Sievers murder case

FORT MYERS, Fla. The killing of Lee County Dr. Teresa Sievers is about to go under a nationwide microscope.

The CBS show “48 Hours” will feature the case in its broadcast at 10 p.m. Saturday. The feature, called “Eleven Hundred Miles to Murder” examines what took place in the days and hours leading up to the morning of June 29, 2015, when Sievers was found dead in her Bonita Springs home.

Her husband, Mark Sievers, faces first-degree murder charges amid an ongoing trial. His stepmother, Jennie Sievers Weckelman, told 48 Hours’ Erin Moriarty in her first TV interview that her stepson wasn’t worried about being arrested.

“He thought, ‘Why would they? What kind of evidence could they possibly have, because I didn’t do anything,’” Weckelman said.

The broadcast examines the dynamics of their marriage and the life of the late Dr. Sievers, who grew to prominence in the Southwest Florida medical community.
