Fort Myers murder suspect decides to plead no contest

CREATED Aug. 26, 2013

FORT MYERS, Fla. - The trial of a Fort Myers man charged in the murder of his girlfriend stopped just moments before the start of jury selection.  34-year-old Connell Carroll told the judge he wanted to plead no contest.  The judge in turn found him guilty.

Carroll was found guilty of 2nd degree murder with a firearm in the 2011 death of Nicole Smith.  Smith was Carroll's girlfriend.

Carroll, who has a long history of violent crime, will be sentenced by a judge in October 21.
