Nathan Carman denies role in deaths of mom, grandfather

07 Décembre 2017

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A Vermont man denied in court papers Wednesday allegations that he killed his millionaire grandfather in 2013 and claims he doesn't know the whereabouts of his mother who disappeared after a boat they were on sank off Rhode Island.

He also could be entitled to his mother's dynasty trust, or Linda Carman's portion of John Chakalos' final estate, which is pending in New Hampshire probate court.

The Chakalos family issued a statement saying "John Chakalos was a long time resident of Chesterfield, New Hampshire, and a well-known, active member of the community".

The petition alleges that Carman committed the "heinous act" of shooting and killing Chakalos in his Windsor home out of "malice and greed" and states "the petitioners believe that Nathan murdered their father, and they ask this court to so find".

His aunts filed a lawsuit earlier this year hoping to block Carman from receiving any inheritance.

Nathan Carman is the man whose mother disappeared while the two were on a fishing trip a year ago. He also admitted he had a life jacket but "lacks sufficient information to know whether or not his mother used one of her own". Chakalos left more than $29 million to his four daughters, including Linda Carman, and $7 million of that money could go to Nathan Carman.

'Not out of the woods' with hand injury
He is on pace to finish with his seventh straight season with more than 4,000 passing yards. Stafford had X-rays in Baltimore that revealed his hand was not broken, just badly bruised.

Nathan Carman was rescued in a life raft at sea by a cargo ship. John Chakalos gave generously and consistently for many decades to the local library and police and fire departments, as well as charities that cared for New Hampshire families in need.

Nathan Carman told investigators that the boat took on water quickly so he ran and grabbed the emergency kit before it sank and got on the life raft.

His lawyers wrote, "The respondent denies that he deployed the life raft, but admits that at some point his provisions made it to the life raft". "He loved the home that he and his wife Rita had built and which they shared with the surrounding community every Christmas".

The lawyers also make a motion to dismiss.

"The groundless claims and denials contained in Nathan Carman's response filing do not reflect reality, and we are confident the legal process will recognize this", Small said.
