Reportedly, Mark Sievers is the victim’s husband in the murder case, Dr. Teresa Sievers, and the father of their two daughters. Allegedly, he was the one who commanded the killers to murder her wife.

On June 28, 2015, Dr. Teresa Sievers was brutally murdered after someone hit her with a hammer in the head at her house in Bonita Springs.

Two weeks after her death, two individuals, reportedly named Curtis Wayne Wright and Jimmy Ray Rodgers, were accused and convicted of the second-degree murder of Dr. Teresa Sievers.

Jimmy Ray Rodgers reportedly received a life sentence in prison, while Curtis Wayne Wright received 25 years of prison time as he pledged to reveal the true mastermind behind the brutal murder.

According to reports, Wright disclosed that the spine-chilling homicide had been planned and ordered by none other than Dr. Sievers’s husband, Mark Sievers, who was his high school best friend. Reportedly, this revelation did not surprise the police.

In an interview, Lieutenant David Lebid, who was investigating the case, said:

"We’ve met a lot of people who have lost a loved one, and he seemed fake...I saw a lot of simulated favor. It didn’t seem real." (Via A & E)

Dr. Teresa Sievers’ husband, Mark Sievers, was accused and convicted of first-degree murder of his wife, Dr. Teresa Sievers. Reportedly, the jury recommended a death sentence for Mark Sievers for committing a heinous first-degree murder of his wife.

However, the final verdict in this case, was made by Lee County Judge Bruce Kyle. The judge’s decision was made complex by the plea made by one of Sievers’ daughters, who reportedly requested the court to show mercy on her father.

During his sentencing hearing, Mark Sievers reportedly read from a prepared statement:

"Our girls have tragically lost their mommy, and now they’re about to lose their daddy as well. Therefore, I respectfully ask the court for life, as not to compound their loss and suffering," (Via A & E)

However, Judge Kyle, absolutely unmoved by the statement, sentenced Mark Sievers to death on January 3, 2020. During the sentencing, the judge said:

"I judge people’s actions. I don’t judge people’s souls,...And if I’m wrong, hopefully, God will have mercy on both of us." (Via A & E)
