Man charged in triple killing may get inheritance

Posted: Updated:

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A man charged with killing his 74-year-old mother and two others in East Hartford is in line to inherit cash and an interest in two homes from his mother's estate.

The Hartford Courant reports Beverly Therrien didn't have a valid will. She and two people staying with her were beaten to death on Thanksgiving Day 2010. Her estate includes two East Hartford homes and $35,000 in cash.

Her son, Brett Bednarz, was charged in October with murder and other crimes in connection with the killings. In Hartford Superior Court on Monday, his case was continued to Jan. 9 to allow him more time to decide whether to waive a probable cause hearing.

Because there was no will, Therrien's estate is to be divided equally among her children. Bednarz would get a share, unless someone challenges it.
