FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The men at the center of the prominent murder case of a Bonita Springs doctor were back in court Thursday.

Investigators say back in 2015, Mark Sievers hired Jimmy Rodgers and Curtis Wright to kill his wife, Dr. Teresa Sievers.

Fox 4 was in the courtroom Thursday morning when Sievers and Rodgers had a pre-trial conference hearing to discuss their separate trials.

Their trials are now set for October 1st. However, defense attorneys say they are not ready for that date.

Sievers and Rodgers are due back in court on September 9th for a motions hearing.

Wright is serving 25 years after taking a plea deal.
