NAPLES, Fla. — A Fort Myers man accused of killing a Fort Myers Police Officer in 2018 faces additional charges for punching an inmate in the face Thursday night.
According to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO), at around 6:45 p.m. an inmate at the Naples Jail was cleaning up trash and handing out supplies to other inmates in housing when he thought he heard 33-year-old inmate Wisner Demarset call for him.
When the inmate asked him what he wanted, Desmaret punched him in the face. The inmate did not retaliate and walked away, CCSO said.
According to the report, jail camera footage confirmed the inmate’s statement. He advised he wants to press charges on Demarset.
Demarset is being charged with battery by a person detained in prison or jail. This is the fourth time he has received additional charges at Naples Jail, CCSO said.
Demarset is already facing a first-degree murder charge for the 2018 murder of Fort Myers Police Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller.
Demarset will be back in court on August 29.
