FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Accused murderer Mark Sievers is looking to get his bond reduced Thursday morning.

He's charged in last summer's murder of his wife, Bonita Springs doctor Teresa Sievers.

In February, a judge set his bond at more than $4 million.  Sievers' attorney wants his bond reduced to $250,000.

Both Sievers and another man charged in the case, Jimmy Rodgers, pleaded not-guilty to second-degree murder. Curtis Wayne Wright is now serving a 25-year sentence after pleading guilty to the same charges.
