Over last weekend, we had some sad news to report in former Florida Gators star safety Tony Joiner placed under arrest and charged with second-degree murder of his late wife Heyzel Obando.

She was found in her apartment dead on February 14, 2016, and her death was ruled a homicide two months later during a long investigation process and without a suspect in the case. This was until the arrest of Mr. Joiner. Joiner had a checkered past in his life being arrested twice in the past for various domestic violence issues for abusing his former ex-wife.

Additionally, Joiner played at UF from 2004-2007 with former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez who was convicted in the murder of a former friend in June of 2013. Hernandez eventually ended his life back in 2017 in prison. This is a sad story for a former college football national champion and player under former Gators coach Urban Meyer. Meyer’s time at UF included two national championships but more than two dozen arrests and now a second former player charged with murder. This is something that doesn’t look well for Coach Meyer and his coaching career.
