U.S. District Court

 A Vermont man accused by family members of killing his millionaire grandfather and possibly his mother says several of his relatives are being driven by greed and are spreading lies about him.

Nathan Carman has been called a suspect in the 2013 shooting death of 87-year-old real estate developer John Chakalos in Connecticut. No arrests have been made. He also has been questioned about the day his boat sank with his mother aboard near Rhode Island in 2016. She's presumed dead.

Carman has denied any involvement in either case.

  A man has been convicted in federal court in New Hampshire of receiving guns and hand grenades as part of a plot to kill his ex-wife's husband, a federal judge, and a former Massachusetts attorney general.

A jury on Tuesday found 69-year-old Edward McLarnon, of Malden, Mass., guilty of receiving firearms with intent to commit murder, plus several weapons and explosive charges.

Evidence showed that McLarnon contacted an arms dealer who was actually an undercover FBI agent in 2015. McLarnon paid $700 for the weapons and was taken into custody shortly afterward.
