The former University of Florida football player accused of killing his then-girlfriend and mother of his children in 2016 is now facing murder charges in Lee County.
Earl “Tony” Joiner was denied bond after going before a Fort Myers judge this morning. It was his first appearance after being extradited to Lee County from Polk County. During his appearance, Joiner’s lawyer did much of the talking on his behalf. Joiner’s lawyer claimed his client was an innocent man and asked the judge to grant him bond.
