FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - A Lee County judge has revoked custody of the daughters of a man accused in a plot to kill his wife, a popular Bonita Springs doctor.

The Naples Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2g8dV5n) Lee Circuit Judge Robert Branning on Friday named Mark Sievers’ mother-in-law the permanent guardian of his two daughters.

The 48-year-old Sievers is accused of orchestrating the killing of his wife, Bonita Springs Dr. Teresa Sievers, in June 2015.

Sievers will have only limited, supervised contact with his daughters over the phone. Sievers and the couple’s daughters were in Connecticut at the time of the killing and he has denied any involvement.

If convicted of first-degree murder, Sievers could face the death penalty.
