Nathan Carman, 28, stands accused of matricide in hopes of inheriting $9,050,00 CAN (or $7 million U.S.)

If convicted, Carman stands to face life in prison.

Court documents say he was found alone in an inflatable raft off the coast of Rhode Island after he and his mother went fishing.

Carman claimed he tried to save his mother, but federal prosecutors allege he sabotaged the boat before the trip.

“Nathan Carman planned to kill his mother on the trip,” reads the indictment.

“He also planned how he would report the sinking of the ‘Chicken Pox’ and his mother’s disappearance at sea as accidents.”

Carman is also suspected of playing a hand in the death of his grandfather, John Chakalos, found shot in the head three times in 2013 in his Connecticut home.

He was named as a person of interest but no criminal charges were ever filed despite a search warrant executed on his home.

Carman, who has a history of mental health issues that have gone untreated since he was 17 years old, was labelled a flight risk after $10,000 was found his house and prosecutors asked the judge to detain him until his trial.

He’s set to appear again in court on Monday.
