Federal Officials Allege Money Was Motive In Killing

Nathan Carman of Vernon has been arrested on federal charges accusing him of killing his mother on the high seas in 2016. The allegations date back to 2013 when his grandfather was killed.

In a statement the US Attorney in Vermont says that "in 2013, Nathan Carman shot and killed his grandfather John Chakalos at Chakalos’s home in Windsor, Connecticut, and, in 2016, killed his mother Linda Carman and sunk his boat during a supposed fishing trip off the coast of Rhode Island. The indictment alleges that both killings were part of a scheme to obtain money and property from the estate of John Chakalos and related family trusts. The indictment further alleges Carman attempted to defraud the company that insured his fishing boat."

Officials say the motives relate to Carman's want for an inheritance check.

He faces up to life in prison if convicted.
