A Vermont man was charged on Tuesday with letting his mother drown in order to gain access to his $7 million inheritance.
In a bid for the massive payout, Nathan Carman, 28, is facing eight charges in the 2016 murder of Linda Carman in Rhode Island.
Carman was discovered alone on a raft eight days after he and his mother went fishing off the shore of Martha’s Vineyard in 2016.
When the boat began to fill with water, Carman swam to the raft and yelled for his mother, but he never saw her. Carman was seen removing stabilizing trim tabs from the stern, near the vessel’s waterline, according to witnesses.
Carman’s relatives have also accused him of murdering his mother and grandpa in order to obtain his large fortune.
In 2013, Vermont police identified Carman as a person of interest in the killing of John Chakalos, who was shot three times in the head at his home in Windsor, Connecticut.
Carman’s family have also accused him of killing his mother and grandfather in order to get his enormous inheritance.
Carman was named as a person of interest in the shooting death of John Chakalos, who was shot three times in the head at his home in Windsor, Connecticut, in 2013.
