High-Profile Fort Myers Murder The Center Of National TV Show Airing Tonight
If you’re a true crime enthusiast, a high-profile Fort Myers murder will be at the center of a show heading to national tv tonight. Accused: Guilty or Innocent? will air on A&E at 9 p.m.
The show will focus on the high-profile Fort Myers murder case of Keith Jones, a former U.S. Marine and recent graduate of the Law Enforcement Academy. In 1997, the owner of the former Tides Motel in downtown Fort Myers found him with a gunshot to his head.
Despite an investigation, the case remained unsolved for nearly 20 years. However, in 2019, a witness came forward, leading to the arrest of Cape Coral mother, Michelle Ashley, on charges of first-degree premeditated murder.
Ashley’s trial lasted four days, ultimately finding her not guilty. Her exoneration led to Jones’ death being one of the oldest unsolved cases in the city.
If you want to learn more about this high-profile Fort Myers murder, tune in to Accused: Guilty or Innocent? tonight on A&E at 9 p.m. News-Press reports that the show will dive into Ashley’s life now after her exoneration, her attorney’s preparation of her defense, and other aspects of the case. There have been other episodes of Accused: Guilty or Innocent? filmed in Florida. This is the first in Lee County.
I’m such a true crime junkie, but I’m unfamiliar with this case, so I can’t wait to watch it tonight!
