A 42-year-old man is accused of violating a woman’s no-contact order and killing her in Fort Myers home.

The Fort Myers Police Department said Ryan Samuel Cole is responsible for the death of Renee Seratelli, who was found not breathing in her Nelson Tillis Boulevard home on July 9.

Cole is also connected to another death investigation in St. Louis, Missouri that occurred in June of 2000, the Fort Myers Police Department said.

He was arrested on July 12 for violating a no-contact order, police said.

Seratelli’s death was ruled a homicide on Sept. 17.

Anyone with information on either of these cases is asked to provide information to the Fort Myers Police Department Homicide Unit.
