This article deals with litigation related to financial planning. Could a lack of financial planning have caused murder? Prosecutors have charged Michael Peterson, a novelist, with murdering in 2002 his wife, Kathleen, a local executive ad socialite, for her $1.4 million in life insurance. The prosecution argues that he wanted her money, in part, to pay off the $142,780 they had run up on 20 credit cards. A verdict had not been issued as of this writing.
