Judge schedules 10-day trial in mystery deaths case
A judge has rejected a request from Vermont's Nathan Carman to dismiss a lawsuit filed by his family accusing him of killing his millionaire grandfather and possibly his mother in an attempt to collect inheritance money.
Judge David King scheduled a 10-day trial in probate court, starting in 2019.
Carman's acting as his own attorney. He's been named as a suspect in the 2013 Connecticut shooting death of real estate developer John Chakalos. No one's been arrested. Carman also was questioned about the time his boat sank with his mother aboard near Rhode Island in 2016. She's presumed dead. Carman denied involvement in both cases.
Carman's aunts sued in New Hampshire last year.
Carman said Monday he didn't agree with the judge's decision but expects to prevail at trial.
