FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The visibly emotional ex-girlfriend of accused murderer Jimmy Rodgers took the stand to testify him in Fort Myers Wednesday.
Taylor Shomaker was breathing heavy and appeared very nervous on the stand.
Shomaker says Rodgers told her he would be getting the money from Wright and Wright would be getting it from Mark Sievers. She says Rodgers said Mark Sievers would be getting it from Teresa's life insurance.— Sandra Rodriguez (@SandraR_media) October 16, 2019
Investigators say they wouldn't have found key pieces of evidence if Shomaker hadn't shown them where it was. She also told investigators that after Lee County investigators visited them at their Missouri home, that Rodgers destroyed his cell phone and submerged it in water.
Shomaker says the day he returned from Florida she told him she was pregnant.— Sandra Rodriguez (@SandraR_media) October 16, 2019
Rodgers is accused of being hired by Mark Sievers to kill his wife Teresa Sievers in Bonita Springs in 2015.
