Family members say they’re not surprised about the accusations facing a North Naples woman. Investigators said the suspect, Amanda Cook, 35, killed a woman inside the house they shared.

A relative of the suspect told WINK News the victim lived with Cook at an Imperial Golf Course Community home.

The killing happened early Wednesday morning.

Cook was booked on second-degree murder charges. But this is not her first run-in with the law.

She has multiple restraining orders, including one from Marco Island city councilman Jared Grifoni. Court documents state Cook harassed Grifoni and his family.

Cook believed she was dating the councilman and even attempted to pick up his children from school.

“My family was harassed,” Grifoni said. “I had to follow up with a restraining order. She would come to my house, office, leave voicemail & notes…”

Cook will have a first appearance hearing in court Thursday.
