Life in Prison for Murder

This morning, Roscoe Randolph Jordan, was sentenced to life in prison, for one count of Second-Degree Murder. The defendant was found guilty in January following a four-day trial in Lee County.

On Labor Day 2020, the victim was shot while standing in front of a convenience store on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, by the masked defendant. They had an argument about 15 minutes earlier. The defendant left the scene after the murder and returned, without a mask on, while Fort Myers Police Officers were on scene investigating. He was quickly arrested.

The murder was captured on video. Members of the community who were present at the scene testified.

Assistant State Attorney Brenda Wade, of the State Attorney’s Office Homicide Unit, and Assistant State Attorney Leena Marcos prosecuted the case.
