A man accused of killing Cassandra Clermont, of Fort Myers, and her unborn twins will remain in jail after a judge set bail at almost $3 million.
Serge Lefevre was arrested on Friday by the Fort Myers Police Department. He is suspected of the death of a woman at Cypress Courts Apartments in November of last year.
Lefevre had his first appearance on Saturday morning in Charlotte County. Bail for Lefevre is $1 million for a second-degree murder charge, $1 million for two counts of partial-birth abortion, $250,000 for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, $250,000 for aggravated battery on a pregnant victim, $250,000 for one count of kidnapping and finally, $100,000 for a charge of false imprisonment. In total, his bail is $2,850,000.
Pamella A. Seay is a legal expert. “That means the baby is partially delivered and there’s a death as a result,” Seay said. “You can’t hurt a baby. You just can’t. That is just so wrong.”
But this is not the first time Lefevre has been not on the wrong side of the law. According to an arrest report from 2017, he was arrested for domestic violence against his then significant other.
She was also pregnant at the time of the assault. “You can’t do a human being like that,” she said. “That’s not right.”
Clermont’s neighbors in Cypress Court Apartments told us it was like she was a prisoner in her own home.
“Never seen the children. Never seen her until I saw her picture up on the news.”
There is also a no-contact order to keep Lefevre from contacting Clermont’s family.
Lefevre was arrested on an out of county warrant.
The incident happened on Nov. 30, at around 1 p.m., Lefevre called 911 to report a woman had a seizure, was unconscious and was not breathing.
Lefevre was at home with the woman and four small children.
Lefevre is set to be back in court on March 5 in Charlotte County.
