Magbanua may help the state as Leon County prosecutors prepare for another trial in the murder of Dan Markel
A woman serving life in prison for her role in the murder of an FSU law professor may become a witness for the state.
Katherine Magbanua is being called by prosecutors later this month to answer questions in a private meeting at the state attorney’s office in Leon County. Magbanua is incarcerated in Ocala.
The move comes as the state prepares a case against Charlie Adelson, the 4th suspect to be tried in the 2014 murder of Dan Markel.
Magbanua was convicted for being the link between Adelson, Markel’s former brother-in-law, and the two convicted hitmen. Adelson’s sister was in a contentious custody battle with Markel when he was shot at his Betton Hills home.
