Man Kills Neighbor, Takes Body to Lawyer’s Office
FORT MYERS, Fla. – A southwest Florida, who lives on Hodges Drive in Bokeelia, loaded the body of his dead neighbor, who lived across the street, into the bed of his pickup truck and drove to his lawyer's office where he claimed he’d killed Ted Hubbell in self-defense. Attorney Robert Harris told the News-Press that 52-year-old John Marshall (above) showed up around 4 p.m. Wednesday, saying he didn't know who else to trust.
The attorney’s office called 911, but Marshall remained at Harris' office for more than six hours before finally leaving for the hospital around 10:30 p.m. He had a swollen lip, missing tooth and what appeared to be two broken thumbs.
According to Harris, Marshall wrestled a gun from Hubbell and fatally shot him earlier on Wednesday. The two men had apparently been involved in a dispute over work being done on one of their properties.
The Lee County Sheriff’s Office say no charges will be filed against Marshall.
