“A New England man rescued from a life raft off the Rhode Island coast after he and his mother supposedly set off on a fishing trip in 2016 has been charged with her murder on the high seas nearly six years later. Nathan Carman, now 28, of Vernon, Vermont, had already been suspected of shooting and killing his grandfather John Chakalos while the 87-year-old man was asleep alone at home in Windsor, Connecticut, in December 2013. According to the new indictment unsealed in Burlington, Vermont, Carman killed his mother, 54-year-old Linda Carman, years later in September 2016 as part of an alleged scheme to obtain millions of dollars of inheritance money from his grandfather’s estate and related family trusts. Carman was picked up in a life raft about 100 nautical miles south of Martha’s Vineyard, a Massachusetts island, on Sept. 25, 2016, by a Chinese freighter.” (05/11/22)
