A Florida Grand Jury declined to bring charges against a Florida man, John Marshall, that killed his neighbor, Theodore Hubbell Jr, dumped the body in the back up his pickup truck and then proceeded the 30 miles to his lawyer’s office. Attorney Harris immediately called 911 to report the murder. Attorney Harris also stated that Marshall claimed self-defense.
According to the Florida Grand Jury they could not find enough evidence to refute Marshall’s statements of self defense.
Marshall had bought property in the rural island community of Bokeelia, where he planned to build a home.
Attorney Harris stated that the victim Hubbell didn't want Marshall to build, and that the men had argued. A few days later according to Marshall, the victim Hubbell returned with a gun. A struggle over the weapon ensued and ended with Hubbell being shot.
