According to the widow's wrongful death lawsuit, the woman lost her husband on August 2, 2006. The three men all claimed to be at the home when someone reportedly entered and stabbed her husband multiple times. However, nobody has actually ever been charged with the murder of her husband, making this a difficult case for both police and prosecutors alike.
Despite the lack of convicted suspects, the woman was able to settle out of court with the three men. The details of the wrongful death lawsuit are being kept private at this time, but it is known that the widow was asking for several million dollars when she first filed.
Losing someone unexpectedly is never easy, but it is important to know that when a death is "wrongful", families may have the right to file lawsuits.
