CONCORD, N.H. (AP) A probate court trial of a man accused by relatives of killing his millionaire grandfather for inheritance money is now scheduled for June.

The New Hampshire trial initially was scheduled in January for 24-year-old Nathan Carman, of Vernon, Vermont, who has denied any role in his grandfather's shooting death in Connecticut in 2013. It's now scheduled to start June 10 and is expected to take three to four weeks.

Carman has also denied any role in the disappearance of his mother during a 2016 fishing trip. Their boat sank near Rhode Island. Carman's three aunts believe Carman killed her and are trying to prevent him from inheriting the mother's share of her father's estate.

The grandfather, John Chakalos, left his four daughters, including Carman's mother, an estate worth more than $42 million.
