Michael Clark conspired with his son, Ben Clark, to kill Michaels’ father – 74-year-old Ernest “Dick” Clark – so they could split the inheritance, estimated at $660,000.
Michael Clark, on a disability pension and concerned about being over $60,000 in debt, disapproved of the fact that Earnest Clark was spending a lot of money on home renovations and that Earnest was planning on buying a fish and chips shop for his live-in girlfriend.
What’s wrong, Mike? Your dad was spending his own money? The money he got from selling the business he built?
Could you feel your “rightful” inheritance slipping away?
Well, that just wouldn’t do.
