Joleen Cummings case: Kimberly Kessler, woman accused of killing Nassau County mom, wants evidence thrown out

NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. — Kimberly Kessler, the woman accused of killing her former coworker Joleen Cummings, wants evidence thrown out, according to new court documents.

Cummings was reported missing Mother’s Day weekend in 2018 after she failed to pick up her children. Her disappearance sparked an investigation that gained national attention.

Though her body has never been found, she is presumed dead.

The public defenders representing Kessler say everything from statements she made during her arrest to evidence linked to her cellphone should not be used in court.

Some of the evidence that was taken during her arrest in May 2018 in St. Johns County are bodily material samples including blood, DNA, saliva, hair, and fingernails, according to motions filed.

Her attorneys allege evidence they want suppressed was taken during an arrest they say violated the terms of the arrest warrant.
