Personal life, ex-husband late Dan Markel
Wendi met Daniel Markel in 2004. The couple dated for a few years and eventually married in February 2006. At that time, Dan was already a professor at Florida State University School of Law. Wendi and Dan gave birth to their first son in 2009, and in just a year they welcomed another son in 2010. However, Wendi left Dan in 2012, took the kids with her and disappeared.
Divorce and quarrels in court over custody of the children
When Dan went on a business trip again in 2012 (which he had had enough of) he came back to an empty house with almost no furniture, no wife and no children in it, but with divorce papers on the bed.

For a long time (according to Dan’s reports the exact period was six weeks), Markel did not know where his wife and children were, as Wendi hid the information with the help of her family, especially her mother and brother Charles. The divorce was finalized in July 2013. Wendi and Dan shared joint custody of their children when Dan filed an injunction to forbid Wendi from moving to Miami with the children. He won the warrant in late 2013, but the battle in court did not end. Dan and Wendi still had multiple claims against each other related to parenting arrangements, finances and asset disposal. Wendi’s mother was also a figure mentioned in one of Dan’s motions he filed in early 2014, as he asked the court to constantly supervise his mother-in-law while she was with his children, alleging that she had several “contemptuous comments’ about Dan.
Who is Dan Markel?
Dan was very notorious in all things court-related as he was a law professor and attorney and worked at the Florida State University College of Law. Born on October 9, 1972 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Dan quickly understood what he wanted to do in life. Dan attended Harvard and studied at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and then received his MD from Emmanuel College, Cambridge. In 2001, Dan received his JD from Harvard Law School, and quickly became one of the in-demand lawyers in Florida. In 2009, Dan wrote the book Privilege or Punish: Criminal Justice and the Challenge of Family Ties while still working as a law professor at Florida State University.

On July 18, 2014, Dan was gunned down while staying alone at his home in Tallahassee, Florida. On July 19, 2014, he died of injuries at the hospital he was rushed to late because the operator who received the call from Dan’s neighbors did not classify it as a really serious call. then was later announced an “intended victim”.
Statements against Dan’s killers. Were they connected to Wendi and her family?
In July 2015, two different rewards were announced for information about the suspects. On May 26, 2016, the first suspect named Sigfredo Garcia was arrested at his home in Miami Beach. Police gave the press no details, only that the case was being investigated as a hit man, and they were still looking for the exact person Garcia hired to kill Dan Markel.
Eventually, a co-conspirator of Garcia was caught, Luis Rivera, who was also often seen with Garcia. Another suspect arrested during the investigation was Katherine Magbanua. the mother of Sigfredo Garcia’s two children. Katherine and Sigfredo were not in a relationship at the time of the murder, but Katherine was the person who linked the killers and members of Wendi’s family. Police discovered that Magbanua was in a relationship with Wendi’s brother, Charles Adelson. However, the court could not prove that Wendi hired Charles or their mother, Donna, Garcia and Rivera, although prosecutors insisted that Charles paid $100,000 for Dan Markel’s murder so that Wendi could have full custody of her sons. On October 15, 2019, Garcia and Rivera were sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder and conspiracy.
Katherine Magbanua is still in prison because she was charged as a co-conspirator – her new trial will take place on April 13, 2020. Wendi has denied any involvement in the murder, but has testified – under immunity – that her family was possible.
