Homicide suspect makes use of useless spouse's insurance coverage coverage to pay for protection



A Denver man accused of killing his wife can use more than $500,000 received from her life insurance policy to pay for his defense, despite arguments that the money should go to the guardian of their two children.Robert Wayne Feldman, 53, was charged with first-degree murder in February last year for the March 2015 death of his 44-year-old wife Stacy, (inset), who was found dead in the shower of their Denver home. On Monday, Feldman fired his public defender and rehired his private attorney after the Colorado Supreme Court ruled last month he could use the funds he collected from Stacy Feldman’s policy, KDVR reported. Soon after Feldman was charged, he agreed to pay David Kaplan’s law firm $550,000 to defend him, using funds from Stacy’s $751,000 life insurance policy.However her family later sued in Probate Court, using Colorado’s slayer statute, which is intended to prevent murderers from profiting off their crimes, usually through a movie or book deal.Denver’s Probate Court later found in favor of the family and ruled that the funds should not be given to Feldman and that the money should instead go to their two young children who are in the custody of a legal guardian. KDVR reported that Kaplan later withdrew from the case, which was taken up by a public defender on Feldman’s behalf.He then appealed to the decision to the Colorado Supreme Court, which ruled Stacy’s family had acted too late in preventing Feldman from using the money. Feldman is seen with his attorney David Feldman, (main).
