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.
Prosecutors said Friday they intend to seek the death penalty.
Desmaret was also indicted for Attempted First Degree Murder of a Law Enforcement Officer, Robbery, Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting an Officer with Violence, Depriving an Officer of Means of Protection, Burglary of a Conveyance, and Grand Theft.
Desmaret remains in custody on a no bond hold. His next case management hearing is scheduled for October 31.
