More than three years after his wife's suspicious death, Tony Joiner - who played safety for the University of Florida Gators in the mid-2000s on the same team as Aaron Hernandez - was arrested Saturday, charged with her second-degree murder, PEOPLE confirms.

The death of Heyzel Obando had remained an unsolved case for three years when she met her untimely demise on on Valentine's Day in 2016.

The crowd on Sunday included young families pushing babies in prams as well as the elderly braving 32 degrees Celsius heat. Some sat in a nearby park singing gospel standard "Hallelujah" even as ranks of riot police started to congregate.


A month after Obando was murdered, Joiner was held at the Lee County Jail for violating a probation charge. Joiner, who has two children with Obando, was released on May 8, 2016.

It's also notable that Joiner, who won the national title in 2006, is now the second player from the 2007 Florida Gators football team to get charged with murder. The statement added that Joiner was taken into custody Saturday in Lake Wales in central Florida in a coordinate effort with the Lake Wales Police Department and the Polk County Sheriff's Office. He will be transferred to the Lee County Jail following first appearance. In his final season he tallied 64 tackles and was a captain of a team that included Heisman Trophy victor Tim Tebow and a freshman tight end named Aaron Hernandez.

Obando's mother, Isabel Martinez, was granted full guardianship of her two granddaughters in 2017.

Joiner is the second player from Meyer's 2007 team to be charged with murder. Per the News-Press, court records show that he had been arrested twice for beating Obando. While serving life in prison after being found guilty, Hernandez was investigated for a double murder that occurred in 2012, though he was acquitted after a trail that ended in 2017. Florida went on to beat Ohio State for the BCS national championship to end that season. He killed himself in jail two years later.
