Judge rejects reconsideration of suit over relative’s death


CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire judge has denied a request to reconsider a lawsuit against a man who relatives say killed his millionaire grandfather for inheritance money.

Judge David King on Wednesday upheld his dismissal. He had ruled John Chakalos lived in Connecticut, even though he had a New Hampshire driver’s license and house, and was registered to vote there.

The lawsuit was filed by Nathan Carman’s three aunts, who don’t want Carman to get any of Chakalos’ money. A message for their lawyers was left Friday.

Chakalos left more than $29 million to his daughters. Carman’s mother, Linda Chakalos, went missing during a fishing trip with Carman in 2016 after their boat sank. She’s presumed dead. Carman’s family believes he was also responsible for her death.

Carman’s denied any role in his grandfather’s 2013 death, or in his mother’s disappearance.
