Man charged in death of Fort Myers police officer plans to use insanity defense
The man charged with shooting and killing a Fort Myers police officer three years ago plans to use the insanity defense.
Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller was killed outside a gas station in 2018.
The lawyer for suspect Wisner Desmaret filed a motion to continue on Tuesday and said extra time is needed for a series of depositions planned for next month.
The attorneys said both sides have agreed upon a mutually acceptable juror questionnaire.
Desmaret faces the death penalty if he’s found guilty.
The next hearing in the case is set for June 29.
