TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Two men were charged in a murder for hire scheme that resulted in the death of a Fort Myers man, the Department of Justice announced Thursday.

According to the indictment, 24-year-old Marvin Harris Jr. paid 25-year-old Latrel Jackon to travel from Illinois to Florida to commit a murder.

Authorities said Jackson traveled to Florida on Oct. 28, 2019, and murdered someone in Fort Myers just five days later.
