Man shoots neighbor

Last week, I wrote four front-page stories about the shooting death of a Naples man following a 10-year feud with his neighbors.

The first story after his death outlined the rising problems between the two families using public records and accounts from others on the street.

The next day, I caught a lucky break when the victim’s daughter told me during a phone interview that the woman who would later be charged in her father’s death had returned to her home after a brief stint in jail. We drove to the scene in time to see the woman Baker Acted into custody. She was later charged in the murder as well.

The next day, the man’s widow broke her silence in a statement and we obtained documents showing she had filed for another restraining order.

All week, I chipped away at a Sunday story looking at what people can do if they’re having serious problems with their neighbors and which area agencies can help.

I’ve covered a few killings in Naples since starting the morning shift, but this has garnered the most interest.
